Sean St Ledger: Leicester City defender keen to stay

Sean St Ledger

Leicester City defender Sean St Ledger would like to stay despite being told he could leave the club in the summer.

The Republic of Ireland international, 28, has started both games this season and scored the winner in the 2-1 League Cup victory over Wycombe on Tuesday.

St Ledger, who still has one a left to run on his contract, told BBC Radio Leicester: "I am really, really happy here. It's a great football club.

"We'll see what happens. I will try to earn a new contract."

St Ledger is one of the higher wage earners at the club and spent time on loan with Millwall last season.

Financial Fair Play regulations have seen the Foxes trying to trim their wage bill and many big-name signings- including Jermaine Beckford and Matt Mills - have left.

St Ledger added: "There have been a lot of changes and the club have to make a lot of cut-backs. The manager just said to me to get on with it and see what happens.

"I will give my all for the club in the time I have left."
