Joe Ledley decides to stay at Palace

HITC Sport understands Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley is set to stay at the club despite interest from elsewhere.

Joe Ledley is set to remain at Crystal Palace when the transfer window closes, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ledley has slipped down the pecking order at Palace this season following the summer arrival of Yohan Cabaye at Selhurst Park.

The 28-year-old has only started one game this season, in the Capital One Cup win over Shrewsbury Town, and he made a late cameo off the bench in last weekend's victory over Chelsea.

A number of clubs have been monitoring Ledley's situation and are thought to have enquired about signing the former Celtic man.

The likes of West Bromwich Albion, Derby County and his former club Cardiff City have been credited with holding an interest in Ledley, but the midfielder is set to stay and fight for his place in Alan Pardew's plans at Selhurst Park.

Ledley is currently away on international duty with Wales ahead of their upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers and trained with his team-mates on Tuesday.
