The Club is delighted to announce that our Captain, Ledley King, has signed a new, improved four-year deal.

Commenting on the contract extension, a smiling Martin Jol said: "Ledley is without doubt one of the most impressive and talented players not just in this country, but in Europe. We know that so many other Clubs would love to lure him from us so we are really pleased he has agreed a new deal.

"We often tease him that he has blue and white blood - he came to this Club as a local youngster 11 years ago and we have been privileged to have seen him develop with us and represent this Club for seven years. Loyalty is a rare commodity. Ledley is an outstanding role model for our youngsters. We have never taken his commitment to this Club for granted and we always seek to reward our best players with improved contracts."

Ledley added: "I am thoroughly enjoying my football at Tottenham. It has been a terrific season, one of the best ever whilst I have been at the Club. We are a Club with a very bright future and I am looking forward to playing a part in that."

Named Captain after Jamie Redknapp’s departure in January 2005, Ledley has made 204 appearances in all competitions since his debut against Liverpool at Anfield in May 1999. Now an England regular, he has 16 full caps to his name.
