The Huddersfield Examiner reports that Huddersfield are looking at the defender who has been trialling with the club, playing in the second half of a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.

Boss Mark Robins is said to like the player, but wants to be sure about the players fitness after recurrent groin and knee injuries which limited him to two club appearances and one Republic of Ireland bow last season.

The 29-year-old defender who started out at Peterborough United, moved on to Preston North End before making his move to Leicester City in 2011, St Ledger has played over 350 times for his clubs and 37 Ireland caps.

Solihull-born St Ledger started his career at Peterborough in 2001 as a youth player, making his full debut in 2002, he played 79 times and scored one goal for the club.  A permanent move to Preston would follow in 2006 and in his five season stay he played 185 times, with 10 goals scored.

Speaking of St Ledger Robins said “Sean has been out for a long time. This isn’t a trial to see if he can do it, because he clearly can…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.”
