Ledly King desperate to stay at White Hart Lane

Tottenham centre-half Ledley King has hinted that he would rather quite football than a play for a club other than Spurs.

The 31-year-old’s current deal has expired and after years of chronic knee problems his time as a player at White Hart lane could be over.

“I had a really good start to last season and was pleased to play as many games as I did,” King said. “A knock in training set me back towards the end, but I opted to carry on playing rather than take the time out to have the knee seen to. Unfortunately that meant that I didn’t play the last few games at the standard I would have liked.

“I’ve been discussing things with the club and my contract expires this summer. The club has been fantastic in supporting me and given me several options to stay involved with Tottenham. I shall take a view with them [in] pre-season on my future.

“Tottenham has been the only club for me and if I can’t play here then I shall look to be involved in another capacity.”
