Having been released by Ipswich without playing a game, it's understandable that Sean St Ledger would be willing to keep his options open when it comes to finally getting back on a football pitch. And if an interview with the Mirror this week is anything to go by, one such option could yet be the League of Ireland.
Although you would imagine the reality of wage demands could be a sticking point, St Ledger has said that the Airtricity League would give him the opportunity to get catch the attention of Martin O'Neill more so than if he decided to go to a far flung destination. (Afghanistan is probably a joke)
I'm not ruling anything out. Maybe in Ireland I'd be looked at more (by O'Neill) than I would if I played in Afghanistan!
I've not spoken to Irish clubs, sure they probably wouldn't want me! But it's something I wouldn't rule out. Keith Fahey is doing well there and I know there are good players in the Irish league.
While a stint in Ireland hasn't been entirely ruled out, St Ledger, who admits he has no offers on the table from English clubs, is setting his sights elsewhere.
A few clubs in America have made enquiries with my agent but we're just waiting on answers.
Steven Gerrard is going there soon and so is Frank Lampard. When you have that standard going over there, it'll only attract more players and I'd be chuffed if I could get that chance.
