Celtic told to up their bid in order to land St Ledger

PRESTON have warned Celtic they will not land Sean St Ledger on the cheap after claiming the Parkhead club were nowhere near meeting their valuation of the player.

Celtic have reportedly offered 1.25million with 500,000 in add-ons for the Republic of Ireland central defender – well short of Preston's 3 million valuation of the 25-year-old.

Preston chairman Derek Shaw said: "Celtic's offer was way below our valuation. Sean is an established internationalist and players of his calibre come at a price."
