Ledley King has revealed that he will talk to Tottenham Hotspur over the course of the summer regarding his future.
The defender is out of contract at White Hart Lane and has rightly been given several options by the club. King will go down in Spurs history as one of the rue legends to ever put on our famous shirt – whereas others have left for regular Champions League football or a fatter wage packet, Ledley has always remained loyal to the club we love, so it’s only right that this is reciprocated.
Read into what you want about Ledley’s playing future from the quotes below – but we won’t be giving up on him until he officially hangs up his boots. If this is sadly the case then if means we have to step up the chase for Jan Vertonghen immediately.
He told the official Spurs site: “I had a really good start to last season and was pleased to play as many games as I did. 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 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.”
