King hoping for Tottenham contract talks
Tottenham club captain Ledley King is hoping for talks about a fresh deal at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have an option for a one-year extension to the 29-year-old's current contract, which runs out at the end of the season, and it looks increasingly likely to be triggered as King has learnt to manage his chronic knee condition and has played in six Barclays Premier League games so far in the campaign.
When asked if talks will start soon, the centre-back told Sky Sports News: "I hope so. It takes two and it's not just down to me.
"It's not something I've thought about too much. The first thing is staying fit and playing games and then when we sit down I'll have my say."
Meanwhile, chairman Daniel Levy has described the appointment of Harry Redknapp as manager a year ago as his finest decision.
"My only regret is that he wasn't manager here a number of years ago," Levy told the Evening Standard.
"Based on how we've progressed since he's been here, it's the board's best football decision during my time as chairman. I always had high hopes that Harry would do a great job here."
Part of Redknapp's regime is to encourage his squad to keep a low profile, although some of his players were pictured on a night out after the recent win over Portsmouth.
One of them, Peter Crouch told ZOO magazine: "Harry's had a big clampdown. Until we went out last week, we hadn't had a night out since I arrived.
"I was well disappointed - I moved to a London club and didn't even get to go out. Not even for a bit of karaoke."
