Injury-hit Hull are currently without their first-choice goalkeeper, Marshall’s international team-mate Allan McGregor, who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a back issue.
A brief statement on the Sky Bet Championship club’s website said: “Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that a bid for David Marshall from Hull City has been accepted.
“David has been given permission to discuss personal terms with Hull and will thus not feature in today’s match-day squad.”
Marshall has made over 280 appearances for Cardiff in all competitions since joining the club from Norwich in 2009.
