Joe Ledley has put Premiership clubs on red alert after rejecting a new contract offer from Cardiff City.

The Sun says the Bluebirds want to cash in on the £6million-rated Wales midfielder, 22, with his deal expiring at the end of next season.

An insider said: "We offered Joe a contract that included a get-out clause which would allow him to leave for a Premier League club but he didn't want to know.

"There's no way we would let him walk away for nothing."

Everton, West Ham and Tottenham are all keen on Ledley.
