Ledley King remains a doubt for Sunday’s clash against Sunderland at the Lane.

Ledley King remains a doubt for Sunday’s clash against Sunderland at the Lane.

The defender damaged his knee in training on Friday, December 2 and has been sidelined since.

Harry Redknapp could have up to three central defenders missing with Younes Kaboul suspended after his red card at Stoke, Ledley a doubt and Michael Dawson still recovering from an Achilles problem.

Harry didn’t rule out a return for Ledley though. “He might come out (and train) tomorrow and give it a go again, we’ll see how he feels,” said the manager. “I wouldn’t be sure at the moment though.

“We’re not too bad overall,” added Harry. “Younes Kaboul is suspended, other than that, the team that played last week are all fit.

“We had one or two come through last night, Niko Kranjcar, Sandro, Steven Pienaar played 90 minutes, so that was great. They are all fit and ready to go."
