THE Joe Ledley to Newport County saga looks like it might be coming to an end either later today or early next week, according to Rodney Parade boss Michael Flynn.

Speaking at this morning’s press conference ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Leyton Orient, Flynn said signing free agent Ledley, 33, would be a “no-brainer” if the two parties can come to an arrangement.

Flynn held talks with the 77-cap Wales international, who has been training with the Exiles, earlier this week and it now appears the ball is in the former Cardiff City midfielder’s court.

“I’ll know next week,” said Flynn when asked if anything was likely to happen. “Yes, we’ve had a chat. I’ll know, hopefully, later (today) or early next week.

“I wouldn’t have talked to him if I didn’t (want him to sign).

“He’s fitted in well with all the players, all the boys get on with him and he gets on with the lads.

“If it could be done it’s a no-brainer.”

On ex-Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony, who is also training with County, Flynn added: “Wilf’s just ticking over and hopefully something comes up for him soon because he can be an asset for a lot of teams around the world.”

Flynn has brought four new faces to the club – Billy Waters, Dale Gorman, Jordan Green and Ashley Baker – since the start of the January transfer window.

When asked if he is looking to do more business before the window slams shut next Friday, Flynn said: “Possibly, I’m not sure. I said one, maximum of two (coming in), if the right one becomes available. There’ll be one or two going.”
