Sky Sports understands that Cardiff and Leicester are interested in signing former Dundee United defender Paul Dixon.
The Championship duo are both in the market for a left-back this summer and it is believed they have targeted the former United trainee.
The 25-year-old is a free agent after leaving The Terrors at the end of last season after his contract expired.
Dixon made 145 appearances for Dundee United in a four-year spell since signing from their city rivals Dundee in 2008.
Cardiff and Leicester are both trying to improve their teams as they go in search of promotion to the Premier League in the new season.
