Cardiff will not be offering terms to on-trial former Rangers and Scotland midfielder Charlie Miller.
Miller joined Bergen from Dundee United
The 30-year-old has failed to make enough of an impression after training with the Bluebirds and playing in one practice match.
The Glaswegian's contract at Norwegian side Brann Bergen runs until next summer, but the club are believed to be willing to negotiate an early release.
Miller, who has one Scotland cap to his name, started his career at Rangers.
He was at the Glasgow club from 1992-9, when he switched to Leicester.
He moved to Watford then Dundee United in 2000, staying at the club for four years before his move to Norway.
Cardiff are believed to be keen to sign a central midfield player and two strikers when the transfer window opens in January.
Goalkeeper David Forde will complete his move to the Bluebirds, meaning that Mark Howard could be on his way out.
Jeff Whitley and Chris Barker are also expected to complete permanent switches from the Welsh side.
