Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday are plotting swoops to sign Cardiff winger Kadeem Harris on a free transfer, Football Insider understands.
Harris is a free agent after it was announced last week that he is being released by Neil Warnock’s side upon the expiration of his contract at the end of this month.
A source with knowledge of the 25-year-old’s situation has told Football Insider that a number of clubs have been alerted to Harris’ availability on a free transfer this summer, with Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday both leading the hunt to sign him.

The attacker made 15 appearances in all competitions last season for Cardiff, scoring one goal – the winner against Fulham last October.
