England ace staying at Spurs until 2012

England international Ledley King could never see himself playing for anyone other than Tottenham after signing a new contract. The 29-year-old, who has been named in England's preliminary World Cup squad, is now contracted to the club until the summer of 2012. King had been out of contact at the end of June although it was unlikely he would leave the White Hart Lane side for pastures new. The talented defender has spent his entire career with the north Londoners and is delighted to be part of their foreseeable future.

Delighted

"I am delighted to have signed a new contract with Spurs," he told the club's official website. "I have been here since I was a schoolboy and I could never see myself going anywhere else. This is where I want to continue playing my football. "We've got the prospect of Champions League football to look forward to next season and with the quality of players we have I believe we are on the brink of something big. "It is an exciting time for the club with a new training ground being built and plans for a new stadium. "I am enjoying my football and I want to be a part of what is happening here."
