Ledley King will make a decision in the pre-season as to whether to call an end to his playing career.
The Tottenham defender, who has constant injury issues to deal with, is not on the retained list provided by the club to the Premier League but he has not ruled out signing a new contract. King has no appetite to join another club, however, and if he cannot continue playing he will stay at Spurs in a non-playing capacity.
He told the club's official website: "The club has been fantastic in supporting me and given me several options to stay involved with Tottenham. I shall take a view with them pre-season on my future. Tottenham have been the only club for me and if I can't play here then I shall look to be involved in another capacity."
