Cardiff City midfielder Joe Ledley has been awarded the Championship player of the month award for January by the official sponsor Powerade.


Ledley has been in inspired form all season but Cardiff City’s improved recent form, and a useful knack of scoring goals saw the Welsh International scoop the award.


Ledley beat of competition from Zheng Zhi (Charlton Athletic), Robbie Blake (Burnley FC) and Dion Dublin (Norwich City) to win the award after a very good month for City.


Ledley was the subject of much interest and transfer speculation during the transfer window and his excellent recent form prompted Everton manager David Moyes to make a late enquiry as to his availability. That, thankfully, was rebuffed by Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale and we can look forward to seeing the Fairwater-born plyer representing his home club and country for the remainder of this season at least.



Congratulations to Joe, hopefully we can return to top form after the 2-1 defeat at Stoke City on the weekend.
