Sean St Ledger: Leicester defender has a chance to leave on loan

The Republic of Ireland centre-back has recovered from a knee problem he suffered in August but has had to wait for a way back in due to Leicester's good form.

He is determined to push for a recall with his efforts in training, while he may also have to consider a short stint elsewhere.

"I've been fit for a couple of weeks," St Ledger said in the Leicester Mercury.

"I have not been involved because Leicester have been doing very well. Now I want to force my way back in.

"We've got a few centre-halves but the two there have done very well. It's just a case of training and seeing if I can get my chance.

"They said I can go out on loan, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens."

St Ledger's immediate focus is on Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier away to Germany on Friday, and he is happy to have been called by interim manager Noel King.

"I was desperate to come over," he said.

"Noel rang me and asked me how my fitness was and I said, 'Yeah I'm good'.

"There are two places and, if I work hard this week in training, I'll hopefully get a start.

"You want to be involved as a footballer. I've missed quite a lot of games in this group, which has been disappointing.

"Hopefully this is the end of my injuries and I can move forward. I've not played much in the last three years."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
