Tottenham Hotspur have announced that Ledley King has signed a new contract until 2012.

The defender has battled against his ongoing knee problem to play 20 times this season for Spurs, helping the club to a 4th place finish and in the process, being named in Fabio Capello’s 30-man provisional World Cup squad.

He told the official Spurs site: “I am delighted to have signed a new contract with Spurs. I have been here since I was a schoolboy and I could never see myself going anywhere else. This is where I want to continue playing my football.

“We’ve got the prospect of Champions League football to look forward to next season and with the quality of players we have I believe we are on the brink of something big.

“It is an exciting time for the Club with a new training ground being built and plans for a new stadium.

“I am enjoying my football and I want to be a part of what is happening here.”


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Absolute legend. No cartilage in either knee – bone on bone – plays through pain every game. Both knees blow up like baloons after each match and he never trains. Yet he performs as the best centre half in the league. If it weren’t for the injuries this guy would be regarded as the best centre half the game has ever seen.

    Puts bastards like john terry and sol campbell to shame.

  2. Why sign an injury prone defender – this guy should have gave up years ago – spurs want get past the first stages of champions league football – keep the signings coming spuds, your sell all your best players in the summer – modders – bale – defoe – pav – BEA – lennon, you want beat the power of the manchester clubs.

    man city fans rule

    • Lol. Prick. “This guy” is England’s best center half by several miles. You at City would be lucky to have a guy with a quarter of his talent.

      • God!

        What happened to our country?

        What happened to our education system?

        As I cheer for England this summer I'll be trying to pretend that our country doesn't contain too many imbeciles like this.

        Hopefully Man City's owners will soon realise the mistake they've made in associating with these idiots and clear off pretty soon. Wishful thinking methinks.

  3. Get of a spurs site bill you p*ick I would put sir Ledley in front of any manchester defender so that’s toure vidic ferdinand lescott anyone of them!
