Remember Irish footballer Sean St Ledger? He started his career with Peterborough United before enjoying stints at Preston North End, Middlesbrough and Leicester City. Now, the defender is over in the U.S with the Orlando City and is apparently the latest beau of Taylor Swift.

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift [L] was rumored to be dating Sean St Ledger - but she's actually dating Calvin Haris. Which is different. 

Or at least that was the rumour - which Ledger has denied. The speculation began when St Ledger told Ireland's RTE that he may invite Swift, 25, to one of his future football games.

"She's not been to a game as of yet. I'm thinking that she might come to one of the New York ones but we'll see," he said on RTE's 'Soccer Republic' show on Monday.

When pushed on whether he was dating the singer-songwriter, he said: "That would be an exclusive for RTE wouldn't it! I'm sitting on the fence."

Still, when the speculation began to ramp up online, the footballer took to Twitter to play things down, saying, "I think the guys @SoccRepublic cut out an important part of that interview where I said that I think miss swift is seeing a certain dj!"

That DJ is said to be Scot Calvin Harris, with the pair spied recently holding hands at a Haim concert in West Hollywood.

"They were holding hands and cozy together, definitely looked cute and couple-y," a source told People magazine.

A different source told the same publication that Harris spent the night at Swift's home on Thursday.
