Tottenham’s captain Ledley King is due to hold talks with the club over the next few weeks with regards to his future as his contract starts to run out.
Ledley was guaranteed a new deal if he reached 20 games for Spurs last season and although he ultimately fell short of that target, the feeling in the press, at least, is that a new contract will be on the table ahead of 2012-13.
There is, of course, the option for King to turn it down and some reports suggest that there will be no shortage of offers from elsewhere if he were to leave the Lane. Reading are believed to have shown an interest and some clubs may look to the situation with Jonathon Woodgate as a precedent – Woody was released after an injury hit few years only to feature on a fairly regular basis for Stoke.
Overall however, it seems more likely that Ledley will be here as a player for one more year at least but is it the right decision for all concerned?
