Lennie Lawrence has tipped Joe Ledley for John Toshack's Wales squad.Cardiff City boss Lennie Lawrence has tipped rising star Joe Ledley to break into John Toshack's Wales squad.
The 18-year-old has been a major plus in what has been a largely disappointing season for The Bluebirds.
Unfortunately for Lawrence, Ledley has been ruled out of Cardiff's remaining Championship fixtures this season after fracturing a metatarsal foot bone in training.
Cardiff have suffered financial troubles this season but the club's boss is hoping to keep hold of Ledley - who has won three Wales Under-21 caps.
"You can never tell what's going to happen in football, but I'd hope Joe remains a main part of the Cardiff midfield for a number of years," Lawrence told the South Wales Echo.
"As for international level, obviously the injury rules him out of Wales' training camp in Spain next month.
"But a call-up to the senior Wales side can't be too far away for Joe.
"Perhaps he'll be considered for the possible friendly match in August," added Lawrence.
