Mick McCarthy has confirmed Wolves ace Andy Keogh is poised to join Cardiff.
As revealed by skysports.com earlier this month, Cardiff were lining up a move for the former Scunthorpe man.
Cardiff have agreed a season-long loan switch for the Republic of Ireland international and he is set to tie up the move in the next 24 hours.
"It's a racing certainty that Andy will be going to Cardiff," McCarthy told the club's official website.
"It was my decision to let him go but he goes with our best wishes and warmest regards.
"Andy has been fabulous here both for me and this football club. It's a good move for him to go to Cardiff and good luck to him.
"He wants to play football and doesn't want to be fourth in line here which I can fully understand."
Keogh is set to become Cardiff's seventh signing of the summer following the arrivals of Craig Bellamy, Seyi Olofinjana, Danny Drinkwater, Jason Koumas, Lee Naylor and Tom Heaton.
