Cardiff City and Wales midfielder Joe Ledley held talks with Stoke City about a possible move to the Britannia Stadium, reports BBC Radio Stoke.

Ledley, who is out of contract with the Championship club, would command a fee as he is still under the age of 24.

The 23-year-old was in Stoke-on-Trent on Monday to visit the stadium and the club's new training facilities.

Celtic and Roma are among the clubs also linked with Ledley, who has scored two goals in 27 appearances for Wales.

Stoke had bids of £5m and £6m for the player rejected by Cardiff in September 2008, several weeks after the Potters had been promoted to the Premier League.

Ledley made his Football League debut as a 17-year-old and has played 255 games for Cardiff, including the FA Cup final defeat by Portsmouth in 2008.

He also scored in Cardiff's 3-2 loss to Blackpool in the Championship play-off final at Wembley in May.
