Celtic swoop for Preston defender St Ledger

Preston North End manager Darren Ferguson confirmed Celtic have inquired about defender Sean St Ledger.

The Republic of Ireland international has returned to Deepdale following a loan spell at Middlesbrough. Ferguson is keen to keep St Ledger and told Celtic they have "no chance" at the moment.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat by Chelsea in the FA Cup, he said: "They have inquired but are a million miles away from getting Sean. The value was set when he went to Middlesbrough.

"I have had a couple of conversations with Sean and he is perfectly happy here. I definitely want to keep him. He is one of the best defenders in the league.

"I have no doubt he can play at a higher level but there is a valuation. If someone meets it I might have a different conversation with Sean. Celtic have no chance with what they are offering."
