Sean St Ledger has been told he can leave Leicester City by manager Nigel Pearson.

St Ledger has a year left on his contract but only made ten appearances for the Foxes this season after suffering from a hamstring injury.

The defender was on loan at Millwall for the last six weeks of the season where he made seven appearances, including their FA Cup semi-final defeat to Wigan at Wembley.

St Ledger told the Irish Independent: "I am surplus to requirements at Leicester. They've said I'm not going to play too much next season and to try and find a new club.

"I have to wait and see what happens. I'm happy at Leicester and wouldn't want to leave but when you are told that then sometimes you have to accept it."

The 28-year-old has made 32 appearances for Leicester since joining the club in 2011 from Preston North End.

He is currently with the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of their friendlies against England and Georgia and St Ledger knows this is a good chance to showcase his talent.

He continued: "There are no offers at the moment, I'm not really concentrating on that. We have four games now and it's a bit of a shop window and we will go from there.

"International football has been a release for me. I've been very, very fortunate to play so many games and if I play, and hopefully play well, then we'll see what happens."

St Ledger has previously played for Peterborough and also for Stevenage and Middlesbrough on loan.
