Ledley's Latest Link-->West Ham United

Cardiff City's midfielder Joe Ledley has been the topic of much debate during this January transfer window with a host of Premiership clubs interested in the Welshman.


Stoke City were one of the favourites but were told they must increase their previous £6m bid and deceided to look elsewhere, instead swooping for Matty Etherington from West Ham Utd.


The loss of Etherington, possibly Boa Morte and now Craig Bellamy has left the Hammers short of options and given boss Gianfranco Zola some room to maneuver in the transfer market. There has been some (stronger than usual) speculation that Joe Ledley is one name under serious consideration and West Ham could be set to make a bid.


There is no indication that Cardiff City would accept, but with Joe out of contract in the summer, and only preliminary talks over a new deal underway - the Bluebirds would be foolish not to consider bids above £5m.


Ledley have always hoped to move to the Premiership, I'm sure every CCFC fan thinks he's good enough and West Ham would surely be an attractive and suitable destination for him. Fellow Welshmen Danny Gabbidon, James Collins (both former team-mates) and Jack Collison are already at Upton Park.


Everton, Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur are amongst the other clubs thought to be monitoring Ledley's situation.

i would have been willing for him to go if we kept chops and routledge, but if he goes and we dont get anyone else in then we can kiss the playoffs goodbye!!
