Cardiff star Joe Ledley admits he expects to stay at the club despite being linked with a move away from Ninian Park.

Ledley's future at Cardiff has been the subject of speculation for some time with the winger regarded as one the best players outside the Premier League.

West Ham and Fulham have both been credited with an interest in the Wales international during this month's transfer window, while Wigan Athletic have now been linked with a £6million bid.

Bluebirds chairman Peter Ridsdale confirmed over the weekend that they had received an enquiry for Ledley, but had rejected it out of hand.


"We have had an enquiry about Joe Ledley and a fee was mentioned, but we said he is not for sale," said Ridsdale.

"Unless somebody comes in with a bid we haven't even thought about, that situation will not change.

"I have spoken to Joe and he understands the situation. I expect Joe to be with City until the end of this season at least."

Ledley has brushed off the latest rumours and says he expects to be still playing for Cardiff once the transfer window slams shut next week.

"As far as I'm concerned, I'm looking forward to playing against Coventry and Nottingham Forest in the Championship and then the replay with Arsenal," Ledley told the Western Mail.

"I'm a Cardiff City player until someone tells me different and I'm not concentrating on anything else but playing for Cardiff on Wednesday night and, hopefully, adding another three points.

"I thought the whole team put in a great performance that deserved a replay.

"We gave our supporters something to cheer and talk about whatever the outcome might bring in the replay."
