Celtic boss Neil Lennon seems resigned to losing Victor Wanyama, a top Cardiff summer target who is also wanted by Southampton.
The midfielder was thought to be close to a switch to Southampton after the SPL champions accepted an offer from the south-coast club.
However, that has stalled in recent days and Cardiff have also entered the race to land the highly-rated 22-year-old.
Lennon admits Celtic are prepared to let the star leave and it is now up to the Kenyan-born player to decide his next move.
He said: "There has been a lot of talk in the last couple of days. We accepted a bid from Southampton and we've done nothing wrong in our eyes as always.
"The ball is firmly in the court of Victor's representatives. You don't know what's around the corner. I would imagine there would be other interested parties but we've had no confirmation from any other clubs yet."
It is thought Saints have bid in the region of £6million for Wanyama and the Bluebirds must at least match that price to stand any chance of landing him this summer.
