Cardiff City are on the brink of reinforcing their goalkeeping options with the capture of Derry City's David Forde.
The former West Ham keeper has passed a medical at Ninian Park and agreed personal terms with Dave Jones's side.
Forde, who spent two years with The Hammers before moving to Derry, is keen to grasp another chance in English football and reignite his hopes of international level with Republic of Ireland.
"I feel I have unfinished business in the UK and I want to push for a senior international spot," said Forde.
"Dave Jones wants me to challenge Neil Alexander for the number-one spot and it is certainly something I think I can do."
Forde has played for a Welsh side previously, as West Ham signed him from Barry Town for £75,000 back in 2002.
