King relishing playing at Spurs

Tottenham defender Ledley King has spoken of his happiness at being able to play for the club again, but feels he is not yet firing on all cylinders.

The veteran centre back has had an injury plagued career at White Hart Lane, and had a particularly frustrating time last term, but has been able to play at the start of this campaign.

With Arsenal the next opponents in the league and King set to start, he has spoken of his desire to feature for Harry Redknapp’s side.

“This is my biggest season at Spurs yet,” the defender told Mirror Football.

“It is the first time I have been in a situation like this – when my contract is up. So it is a big season. I have to prove I am still worth it. I can’t see myself pulling on a shirt for anybody else at this stage of my career – although a player can never say never.

“At the end of the day, I just want to stay fit and if I can play, let’s see what position that puts me in at the end of the season. It is down to me to play the games. If I don’t play enough games, it is a difficult position.

“We will see what the situation is when all is said and done. If I get to 20 [games], I am not going to stop! I will keep playing as many as I can. At the moment I am just trying to bed in, get a bit of fitness and hopefully not get any niggles. If I can do that, I can get stronger and keep playing,” he concluded.

Tottenham have won their last three games with King in the team, and will look to take advantage of Arsenal’s vulnerable start to the campaign on Sunday.
