MLS move for St Ledger

Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger has signed for Major League Soccer newcomers Orlando City.

The 30-year-old centre-half had been on trial with the franchise, playing in pre-season friendlies, and has now agreed a permanent deal.

Orlando are coached by former Everton player Adrian Heath and have a handful of players acquired from the English leagues in their squad.

St Ledger joins the likes of Seb Hines, Luke Boden, Lewis Neal, Martin Paterson and Harrison Heath at the club, whose star name is Brazilian Kaka.

"We're delighted to have Sean on our roster, as he brings a lot of experience at the club and international level," said Adrian Heath. "He's a very versatile defender who is comfortable playing in several positions along the backline, which is a big bonus for the squad."
