Celtic defender Ledley linked with Cardiff return

Celtic’s Joe Ledley could make a return to Cardiff City in the Premier League next season, reports The Scotsman.

Cardiff-born Ledley spent six seasons with his home-town club in the Championship before moving north of the border in 2010 to play in the Scottish Premier League in slightly acrimonious circumstances due to Cardiff being unable to receive transfer money for Ledley from the Scottish club.

The 26-year-old is believed to be one of the Glasgow club’s top earners and has enjoyed a successful career with Celtic, which has seen him play Champions League football. Ledley scored his eighth goal of the season during yesterday’s title-clinching 4-1 victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, which is the second successive league title he has enjoyed in Scotland.

However, Cardiff manager Malky Mackay’s, who has a £25 million budget courtesy of Cardiff’s Malaysian owner Vincent Tan Tan, has reportedly put Ledley on his wish-list for his summer recruitment. And the reported fee of £4 million, which would offer pure profit to the Glasgow club may well be enough for Ledley to make a return to his old stomping ground.
