The 27-year-old has spent the last nine months on loan at Canadian side Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS.
It is the second time Mutch has been sent out on loan by the Selhurst Park club since they signed him from QPR in 2015.
But SunSport understands Cardiff are aiming for a reunion with Mutch this January as Neil Warnock looks to strengthen his squad.
Mutch spent two years at the Welsh club between 2012 and 2014 having been signed from Birmingham after a series of loan moves.
