Huddersfield Town are weighing up an offer to Republic of Ireland centre-back Sean St Ledger.

The 29-year-old, a free agent after leaving Leicester, has been training at PPG Canalside and played as a trialist in the second half
of the 2-2 home friendly draw with Newcastle.

 

Manager Mark Robins likes the player, but wants to be satisfied about his fitness after groin and knee injuries limited him to just two club appearances and one at international level last season.

Solihull-born St Ledger, who started out at Peterborough and has also played for Preston before moving to Leicester in 2011, can boast more than 350 club appearances and 37 caps.

"Sean has been out for a long time. This isn't a trial to see if he can do it, because he clearly can," explained Robins.

"It's just the mechanics of the whole thing, and he looked competent against Newcastle and did himself no harm whatsoever.

"He talks really well and will help everyone at the club if we can get him on the pitch and make sure he's fit."

St Ledger tweeted: "Really enjoyed that second half with Huddersfield. Don't know what the future holds as of yet."
