Ireland defender Sean St Ledger will leave Leicester after failing to secure a further contract with the newly promoted club.

The defender joined the Foxes in 2011 but a series of injuries prevented him from establishing himself in the side, who won the Sky Bet Championship. 

The 36-cap international made just two club appearances this season.

In a series of tweets, the 29-year-old said that it would probably come as no surprise that he had not been offered contract, and that he would miss being at the club.

“At the moment I haven't a clue what the future holds," St Ledger said, going on to indicate that a "new chapter" was needed, as he tried to get in back into the international fold.

St Ledger was not included in Martin O’Neill’s 32-man provisional Ireland squad for the upcoming friendly internationals, which was announced today.
