Ledley King says he is 'not entirely sure' what will happen this summer when he sits down with Tottenham to discuss his future with the club.

The Spurs captain made 23 starts last season owning to a chronic knee problem, and will undergo even more surgery before the start of the new campaign.

King is out of contract in July and, although Harry Redknapp will surely strive to keep his skipper at White Hart Lane, the 31-year-old is yet to discover what next season will hold.

"Now the season is done I am sure there will be some talks," King, according to skysports.com.

"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."

King's injury problems have been well-documented, and the centre-back is unable to train on a regular basis in order to limit the workload placed on his troublesome knee.

Yet his importance to Spurs cannot be underestimated and, when fit, is unquestionably the finest centre-back at Redknapp's disposal.

His fitness, however, continues to remain a cause for concern, although King is hopeful he will recover just fine after going under the knife again later this week.

"I will have a little clean out, maybe in the next couple of days," he added.

"It's something I had earlier in the season. I missed the first few games when I had an operation and hopefully it's not something serious.

"It is something I will have done and hopefully it won't set me back too much.

"I hope I will be able to have a good season with the knee cleared out."
