Neil Cox has been released by Cardiff and is already eyeing up a move to Scunthorpe.
The 34-year-old's departure is the latest in a mass exodus from Ninian Park, as Bluebirds boss Dave Jones plans ahead for next season.
The defender is hoping to secure a move back to his hometown club, but conceded that he had not been in contact with Iron boss Brian Laws for some time.
"I'd definitely be interested in a move back to Scunthorpe. I spoke to Brian Laws last summer when I was told I could leave Watford and he rang again this season to see what my situation was," Cox told The Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph.
"It's not dead in the water as far as I am concerned, though I haven't spoken to Brian Laws since he thought I'd signed a deal at Cardiff.
"When I spoke to Brian he said there were a few people who he had offered contracts to and he was also trying to sign a few more.
"I don't know whether that's still the case or what he is looking for. I just have to wait and see what happens."
Also leaving Cardiff are Wales goalkeeper Martyn Margetson, midfielders Willie Boland and Phil Mulryne, defender Jermaine Darlington and striker Guylain N'Dumbu-N'Sungu, who has already signed for Gillingham.
Youngsters Byron Anthony, Jon Kift, Nicky Fish, Danny Parslow, Anthony Taylor, Lee Worgan, Lloyd Jenkins and Tarek Khalil have also been released by the club.
The Bluebirds are also willing to listen to offers for all their contracted offers, including highly-rated front man Cameron Jerome.
