Jenkins set for Cardiff move
Jenkins will form a club and country alliance with Rob Howley
Cardiff are ready to sign Wales fly-half Neil Jenkins for a record £200,000 from Pontypridd on Monday.
The deal will also see former Pontypridd player Lee Jarvis move back in the opposite direction.
Jenkins is set to sign a four-year deal worth between £400,000 and £500,000.
He will form an all-international half-back pairing with Welsh skipper Rob Howley.
Cardiff chairman Peter Thomas and club director Gareth Edwards are likely to unveil their record signing at a news conference at Cardiff Arms Park on Monday.
Pontypridd chief executive Cenydd Thomas confirmed: "We are close to a deal."
Jenkins has scored 2,943 points in 213 appearances for his home town club.
