St Ledger secures Lions move

SEAN ST LEDGER will fight like a Lion to get his Ireland place back after the defender's loan move to Millwall from Leicester.

St Ledger is aiming to get as much game time as possible under his belt ahead of the prestige friendly with England in Wembley on May 29, followed by the Aviva Stadium clashes with Georgia on June 2 in a friendly and the World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands on June 7.

The centre-back - who played the final 18 minutes of last Tuesday's World Cup qualifying draw with Austria as a replacement for the injured Ciarán Clark - will complete his loan switch to the London club following tonight's npower Championship fixture between the Foxes and the Lions and will remain with Kenny Jackett's team until May 4.

Ironically, the 28-year-old could have another starring role to play at Wembley on April 13 as Millwall take on James McCarthy's Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-finals. St Ledger will be available to make his debut for Millwall against Mick McCarthy's Ipswich on Monday.
