Spurs boss Harry Redknapp says Ledley King is a “certainty” to go to the World Cup.

England assistant coach Franco Baldini was at the Lane on Saturday to watch the 1-0 win against Bolton, and Harry Redknapp has been in regular contact with Fabio Capello over King.

“He’s a certainty to go to the World Cup,” Redknapp said. “Look at how he played at Old Trafford, he was our best player.

“I’d be surprised if he (Capello) doesn’t take him.

“I spoke to Fabio Capello about six weeks ago. He kept asking ‘how’s Ledley, how’s Ledley?’

“When Capello spoke to me he said he had six days between each game. I said it’s not a problem then.

“What a great player to have. Even if he doesn’t start him, if something happens with Rio or John then you’ve got him to come in.

“You can bet your life on him going.”
