An fresh injury to Ledley King could force Harry Redknapp to buy another centre-half in the January transfer window, with King potentially out for weeks, reports The
King, 31, has not played since the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on December 22, and suffered another setback this week after picking up a potential hamstring tear in training. “Ledley did his hamstring on Friday,” Redknapp confirmed, adding, “He has gone for a scan. We don’t know the results yet, but… his hamstring went. I have not got many options; I have got Bassong, Kaboul and Dawson. No-one else.”
Tottenham have been linked with a host of centre backs already, despite the transfer window only being nine days old. Chris Samba, James Collins, and Jan Vertoghen have all purportedly been of interest, and King’s fresh injury may hasten a move.
