Former Bluebirds midfielder, now with the SPL champions, was linked with a return to south Wales
Cardiff and Celtic have rubbished talk that Joe Ledley could return to his hometown club this summer.
Rumours have sprouted linking Ledley with a return to the Cardiff City Stadium three years after he departed for Celtic Park where he has won two Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish Cups and played in the Champions League for the Bhoys.
Reports claim the Premier Leaguew newcomers have been chasing him for a number of months and sent scouts to watch him against against Borussia Monchengladbach.
But sources close to Wales Online in south Wales and Glasgow have dismissed speculation that the 26-year-old is poised to make a £3 million move back to the Bluebirds, with manager Neil Lennon insisting he will remain with the current SPL Champions.
After losing Victor Wanayama to Southampton earlier this month Lennon will undoubtedly be eager to retain the services of Ledley and hinted that talks over extending the midfielder’s contract are imminent.
And with Cardiff manager Malky Mackay agreeing a near £10m fee with Toulouse for Etienne Capoue the chances of the Wales international returning home appear unlikely.
Mackay and his recruitment staff are still holding discussions with Capoue and hope to conclude the deal as soon as possible ahead of their maiden top-flight season.
