Tottenham are reportedly set to offer Ledley King a new one-year contract at White Hart Lane, according to The Daily Mail.
The cultured centre-back is notorious for long-term knee injuries, and has been in and out of the north London club’s first team over the last couple of seasons due to injury.
With his contract expiring in the summer, it was thought that Harry Redknapp’s men would let their stalwart leave the club as he has failed to remain fit or hold down a consistent position in Spurs’ starting XI.
However, rumours indicate that King will be given another season with the Premier League side, but may well have to take a drop in his basic wage, thought to be £70,000-per-week.
King did make 23 appearances for Tottenham last season, and Reading are thought to be monitoring the situation and ready to make a move for the centre-back if things do not materialise at White Hart Lane.
