Preston centre-half Sean St Ledger signed on the dotted line for City last night…
The former Peterborough defender, who has played for the Republic of Ireland 19 times, cost City £1.2M.
With Craig Mackail-Smith opting to join Brighton instead of City the hunt for a striker steps up, with Bristol City’s Nicky Maynard and Portsmouth’s David Nugent still topping Sven’s wanted list.
Also in Sven’s sights is highly regarded Reading skipper Matt Mills, who is valued at £4M by the Royals. City face a challenge from Stoke and Wolves for his signature if Reading can’t persuade him to stay at the Madejski Stadium.
