Ledley King could make a return to first-team action at Liverpool on Sunday.

The defender and club captain has been sidelined with groin trouble since our 2-1 win at Fulham in the Premier League on October 16.

He returned to action at Spurs Lodge on Wednesday when he completed 90 minutes in a Spurs XI friendly win against West Ham.

Harry Redknapp reported earlier today (Friday, May 13) that William Gallas is likely to be out for the rest of the season with a calf injury he picked up at Manchester City on Tuesday, so Ledley's availability has come as a boost.

"Yes, Ledley could feature," said Harry. "He played in a game on Wednesday and came through it okay. He didn't train today, which is normal, but if he feels okay he will be available.

"He's a fantastic player - both him and Jonathan Woodgate. We're lucky that Michael Dawson has been fantastic, William Gallas has as well and Sebastien Bassong has been unlucky, he's never let us down."
