Joe Ledley, the young Welsh winger who really caught the eye in his time at Cardiff City, is currently a free agent – thanks, Blackpool – and in search of a new club. It looks like Celtic will win the 23-year-old’s coveted signature.
Speaking to the Daily Record, Ledley admitted he was “impressed” by his recent visit to Parkhead.
“It’s not a done deal yet. Obviously I’ve got a lot to think about,” Ledley said.
“I just came up for a look around, but I’ve been very impressed. Will I be back? We’ll see!”
Ooh, the tease! Reading between the lines though, I’d be amazed if Ledley didn’t end up at Celtic for the start of the new season. Which would be a kick in the teeth for Stoke City, AS Roma and Birmingham City, who have all been linked with Ledley.
Celtic and Ledley would be a good fit, in my view. The fans in Scotland would certainly appreciate him staying true to his Celtic roots, especially at the expense of Premier League clubs.
