The Nigerian defender has left AC Milan and signed for Bursaspor in Turkey.
Last year he spent some time on loan at QPR.
On hisa move he said: "I am delighted. I wanted to play in the Turkish league with a good team and I made a good choice.
"Cardiff contacted my agent but I decided to come here."
I guess we'll never know just how interested Cardiff were.
Another player not coming is Hal Robson Kanuu. The Reading and Wales player was linked with Cardiff but he's signed a new contract at the Madejski.
