Ledley told to sign new Cardiff deal or be sold

Ledley’s agent said in a radio interview that the Wales star should see out his contract with the club and leave for free.

An insider told News of the World: “If Joe says he wants a new deal, the club will speak to his agent.

“If the answer is no, the directors will be told at a board meeting scheduled for Friday.

“The directors will have to make a decision and the likely outcome is they will be open to offers in January.”

Ledley has been linked with Premier League sides Everton and Stoke.
