Ledley shrugs off transfer talk

Cardiff captain Joe Ledley insists he will put all the speculation surrounding his future to the back of his mind as his side's FA Cup tie with Arsenal draws near.

Barclays Premier League outfit West Ham have been linked with a £4million bid for the 22-year-old midfielder this week, while Stoke and Sunday's Ninian Park visitors Arsenal have also been mentioned as possible suitors.

However, the Bluebirds have not yet seen their valuation of Ledley met, and although the Wales international admits he is flattered by the interest, he is only focused on Sunday's sell-out game in the Welsh capital. "It is great to be linked to a Premier League club and, if I continue playing well, then who knows what might happen?" Ledley told the South Wales Echo.

He added: "I've got to put the speculation to the back of my mind. It's flattering and proof that I must be doing something right.

"But nothing has happened. I must continue to do what I've been doing on the pitch.

"It is not down to me anyway, it's down to the club. So I will just concentrate on playing well and helping the team continue to achieve good results."
