Sean St Ledger played 37 times for Ireland, has represented a host of clubs in the U.K. and now in the later years of his career is on an adventure with Orlando City in the MLS. He probably never thought he'd have to explain that he isn't dating Taylor Swift.

Still, that's where he found himself this week as the rumour took hold.

It began after the pair were pictured at a New Year's event.

It continued after an interview with Soccer Republic, when he said he is "sitting on the fence," when asked directly.

That allowed the rumours—and the jokes—to spread:

Sean St Ledger: 2014: Zero appearances for Ipswich. 2015: Playing alongside Kaka & reportedly dating Taylor Swift. http://t.co/Z7m2OtIPp6

But eventually St Ledger shut it down: 

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!

St Ledger was referring to Calvin Harris, who is believed to be her current partner.
