Palace's Ledley bid accepted

Celtic have accepted a bid from Crystal Palace for midfielder Joe Ledley, according to reports on Friday.

The Wales international's current contract runs out in the summer and he had been stalling on a new deal with the Scottish champions.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon was desperate to hang on to the fans' favourite but has reluctantly agreed to accept the reported 800,000 on offer rather than lose him for nothing at the end of the season.

And Lennon could be about to lose another of his regular first-teamers with Turkish club Trabzonspor linked with a final-day bid for Georgios Samaras.

Like Ledley, the Greece international striker is out of contract in the summer and has shown little indication of committing his future to the Scottish Premiership leaders.
