Tottenham Hotspur are set to hand Ledley King a new one-year contract.
The central defender who suffers from a chronic knee problem has managed to start 13 Premier League games this season.
Harry Redknapp said: ‘He’ll be here next season. We want Ledley as part of this club. He’s been here since he was a boy. You have to look after people like that and he’s up there with the best centre-backs in the country.’
‘We’ve got to keep managing the knee,’ added Redknapp. ‘He’s never going to be right. I’d take him to the World Cup and there’s every chance he’ll go. But if he plays against Egypt then he misses both Saturdays for us.’
