King set for further surgery

Published Add your comment

Tottenham captain Ledley King will have another operation on his troublesome knee this week and then start negotiations with the club over prolonging his 14-year spell at White Hart Lane.

King's chronic knee injury has restricted him to 23 starts this season. Although that represents a significant improvement on the nine appearances he made last season, when he was also troubled by a groin injury, the Spurs club captain's future is still shrouded in doubt.

The 31-year-old, whose contract expires this summer, said: "Now the season is done I am sure there will be some talks. To be honest, I am not entirely sure what's going on (in terms of a contract offer). I have just wanted to concentrate on trying to play and get my knee right."
