Report: Joe Ledley turns down China move, reunion with Pulis at West Brom still a possibility

Joe Ledley of Crystal Palace looks on during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Sunderland at Selhurst Park on February 4, 2017 in London, England.

Joe Ledley is angling for a Premier League move - and Brighton, Stoke and West Brom are keen.

According to The Mirror, free agent Joe Ledley has turned down moves to China and Turkey in order to hold out for a Premier League club – and West Bromwich Albion are one team interested.

Ledley, 30, made almost 100 appearances for Crystal Palace following a January 2014 move from Celtic, but his contract was not renewed earlier this summer, meaning he is now a free agent.

With just over a week to go until the start of the Premier League season, Ledley remains without a club, and whilst he can still join a club even after the transfer window has closed, he will want to get fixed up with a deal somewhere as soon as possible.

However, The Mirror report that Ledley has rejected offers from clubs in China and Turkey in order to hold out for a move back to the Premier League, where three clubs are interested in signing him.

It's claimed that newly-promoted Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion are both interested in signing Ledley on a free transfer as they all look to boost their midfield options.

Whilst staying in the south with Brighton, or even working under fellow Welshman Mark Hughes at Stoke could be appealing to Ledley, West Brom may just make the most sense for him.

It was Baggies boss Tony Pulis who signed compatriot Ledley for Palace in January 2014, and a reunion may well be appealing to both men having already worked together in recent years.

Add in that West Brom have lost a midfielder this summer having seen Darren Fletcher join Stoke, and Ledley could serve a key role challenging Jake Livermore and Claudio Yacob in holding midfield, and on a free transfer, swooping for Ledley could be ideal for West Brom.
