Huddersfield Town are deciding whether to offer Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger a contract with the club.

The 29-year-old was released by promoted side Leicester City in the summer and has been training with the club for the past week. He took part in a friendly against Newcastle and manager Mark Robins has said the trial is less about whether the defender can play but more about his recent fitness issues.

He told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner: “Sean has been out for a long time. This isn’t a trial to see if he can do it, because he clearly can. He talks really well and will help everyone at the club if we can get him on the pitch and make sure he’s fit.”

The player also tweeted this after the game:

St Ledger struggled with groin and knee injuries last season which limited him to just two league games but the former Preston and Peterborough player boasts a wealth of experience both in the league and on the international stage, with 37 caps so far to his name.
