Jones surprised by Ledley`s SPL move

Cardiff boss Dave Jones has expressed his surprise at Joe Ledley`s decision to choose Celtic ahead of a move to the Barclays Premier League. Ledley is out of contract and held talks with Celtic this week after also attracting interest from Stoke. The Wales international is now expected to finalise a move to Parkhead, although Jones is waiting for confirmation of the midfielder's intentions. Jones has suggested the 23-year-old is making the wrong choice in opting to head to the Scottish Premier League ahead of its English equivalent. "It seems to be a done deal, although he has not been in contact to tell us," Jones told the South Wales Echo. "He is going to the Premier - but the wrong Premier. I am a little bit surprised but there you go. Sometimes you make your bed and have to lie in it. "I spoke to him few days ago. He was still undecided then. I am surprised at the decision as he said he wanted Premier League football."
