THE AMERICAN DREAM is over for Sean St Ledger.

The former Ireland centre half has been ‘waived’ by Orlando City, with the MLS confirming that his release was due to a “serious breach of club policy”.

St Ledger has played 15 times for the Florida club, who are coached by Adrian Heath and led by one-time world player of the year, Kaka.

The former Preston defender  — who has 37 Ireland caps, but has not featured since Martin O’Neill took over as manager — was thought to be impressing since he moved to the MLS.

“The move opens up an international spot on Orlando City’s roster. St. Ledger, who signed with the team on March 5, was making a salary of $124,992. It is not immediately clear how the move impacts Orlando City’s salary cap,” Paul Tenorio writes in the Orlando Sentinel.
