(Reuters) - U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for five years, will enter a plea in his court-martial at Fort Bragg, North Carolina on Monday, the Army said in an emailed statement.

The statement on Thursday did not specify details of the plea. Eugene Fidell, one of Bergdahls lawyers, declined to comment on the plea.

Citing unnamed sources with knowledge of the case, the Associated Press reported last week that the Idaho native would plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy by endangering U.S. troops.
