Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has secured the signing of Don Cowie from his former club Watford.
The 28-year-old midfielder joins the Welsh club as a free agent on a three-year deal as Mackay continues to rebuild his squad with pre-season training looming.
The Scotland international told the club's official website: "I was away on holiday in Florida when I heard that Malky had been appointed as the new Cardiff manager. I was obviously disappointed at that stage to hear that he'd be leaving Watford, but I'm absolutely delighted to now be joining him again at Cardiff City."
He added: "I had two years at Watford working under Malky so I obviously know very well what he's on about.
"He made my time working at Watford very enjoyable so I'm looking forward now to getting started again.
"This is a new challenge for me and I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully I can be part of something very special here."
