Caulker had a loan spell with Swansea City during the 2011-12 season and he says that experience was a factor in his switch to Cardiff.
"I enjoyed my time at Swansea and the people in south Wales are great so it was a no-brainer to move here," he said.
"I thank Swansea for that opportunity, it progressed my career, but now I am a Cardiff player and I hope to go above and beyond for them.
"I spoke to a few Swansea players before their game (against Malmo) last night, I wished them luck and they wished me luck. There are no hard feelings between us as players.
"It will be fantastic to be involved in the derby, I played in a London derby a few years ago and I am definitely looking forward to this one."
