Football League World’s Cardiff City fan pundit Rhys Davies has offered some insight into the situation surrounding Joe Ledley’s recent return to the club.
The defender has been training with the Bluebirds in recent weeks, according to Wales Online, so we got in touch with Davies to hear what he had to say on the matter involving a real fan-favourite.
“I don’t think Cardiff will be looking to sign Ledley,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“Rumours suggest that he has asked Warnock to train with the Bluebirds because he wants to get his fitness back up again and the former Celtic player made just four appearances for Derby last season, and has only played thirty games in nearly two years.
“He is a Cardiff fan favourite and was instrumental during our famous FA cup run in 2008 and his impressive performances under Dave Jones got him a move to the Scottish giants.
“But he won’t add any significant quality to what we already have.”
Ledley was released by Crystal Palace at the end of the 2016/17 season after three years at Selhurst Park and was picked up by the Rams in August on a free transfer.
But after failing to impress in his two years at Pride Park, he was released again in the summer and is yet to find a club willing to take a chance on him.
The 32-year-old graduated through the academy in South Wales, going on to spend six years in the Bluebirds’ first-team.
Cardiff picked up a much-needed three points on Wednesday night when they saw off QPR 3-0 at home to rise into tenth place.
