Cardiff City are closing in on the signing of Wigan defender Ivan Ramis, Sky Sports understands.
The 29-year-old had been reported to be a target for Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, but he now looks set for a switch to South Wales.
Ramis joined the Latics from La Liga side Mallorca in 2012, although injuries have limited the Spaniard to just seven Championship appearances so far this season.
The defender is midway through a three-year contract at the DW Stadium which is set to expire in 2015.
Cardiff have already been active in the current transfer window, adding Mats Moller Daehli from Molde and Magnus Wolff Eikrem from Heerenveen.
