Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley has waved off speculation linking him with return to former club Cardiff City this summer, Sky Sports reports.

The 26-year-old had been linked heavily with a return to the club where he began his career but has insisted that he wants to stay at Celtic next season to test himself again in the Champions League.

Ledley spent six years with Cardiff between 2004-10 before moving north of the border.

However, amidst fears from Neil Lennon suggesting that he may lose a number of his stars the Welsh international has moved to dispel any rumours linking him with a move away at the end of the season.

“I don’t know anything (about Cardiff). I haven’t spoken to my agent, all I can do is concentrate on my football and hopefully stay at Celtic,” he said.

“In pre-season I can sit down with my agent and with the people at Celtic and hopefully come to an agreement.”

“The majority of players would want to play in the Premier League but you have the opportunity to play in the Champions League at Celtic, the best competition in the world, and the majority of players would want that.

Celtic enjoyed their most successful Champions League campaign to date, making it past the group stage for the first time and toppling Barcelona on an emotional encounter along the way.
