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."
