Sheffield Wednesday have won the race to sign Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris on a free transfer, Football Insider understands.
Football Insider revealed earlier this month that Wednesday and Championship rivals Middlesbrough have both expressed an interest in snapping up Harris when his contract expires at the Bluebirds at the end of June.
A source with knowledge of the 26-year-old attacker’s situation has told Football Insider that Wednesday have moved quickly to agree a deal with him.
He is set to sign a deal to join Steve Bruce’s side after agreeing the terms of a three-year contract.
Harris made 15 appearances in all competitions last season for Cardiff, scoring one goal – the winner against Fulham last October.
Wednesday have made signing new wingers one of their top priorities this summer and Harris fits the bill for them as he is a free agent and has seven years experience in the Championship.
Harris is a free agent from 1 July after it was announced earlier this month that he is being released by Neil Warnock’s side upon the expiration of his contract at the end of this month.
The forward has made 79 appearances for Cardiff and also had spells at Brentford, Wycombe Wanderers and Barnsley.
