FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Sean St Ledger has been cut from DC United’s pre-season roster after an unsuccessful trial with the MLS club, amid reports that he could now be set for a move to Orlando City.

DC United have decided not to offer a contract to former Ireland international Sean St Ledger ahead of the 2015 Major League Soccer season.

The 30-year-old had been on trial at the MLS club following an unsuccessful two-month spell at Ipswich Town, but was cut from United’s pre-season roster having been left out of their friendly defeat to Malmo.

St Ledger played just two 45-minute halves for DC United, but the club announced on Twitter that they would not be keeping him in their pre-season squad.

Nevertheless, reports today suggest he could now be set for a move to Orlando City, with St Ledger set for a trial with the upcoming MLS side, who count Brazilian star and former Ballon d’Or winner Kaka among their playing staff.

The 37-time Ireland international has played just 15 league games since returning from Euro 2012, where he played all three games and scored Ireland’s only goal of the tournament.
