It’s clear that Juande Ramos is going to to renovate his Tottenham squad in the summer. The Spaniard made a handful of changes during the January transfer window (Defoe out, Woodgate and Hutton in), although it’s likely that there’ll be exports and imports on a far grander scale as soon as the final whistle blows against Liverpool on the final day of the season.
The Daily Mirror reports that two players who may find themselves surplus to requirements are Paul Robinson and Ledley King, something that you couldn’t have predicted at the start of the season.
The Spurs boss said: “We will have to see what state he (King) is in.
We are going to have to wait for the diagnosis of the doctors. We will have to see if he is here next season.
“We don’t know what the squad is going to be like and we will make that decision then.
“Robinson’s injured and hasn’t trained for three weeks,” added Ramos.
“Unless he recovers his fitness quickly, it will be very difficult for him to play.”
Ledley King has been a loyal servant to Spurs for many seasons, although injuries have blighted his career, preventing him from playing a continuous spell of football for the club and hindering his international prospects at the same time. Even so, it will be a sad day if he were to leave the club in the summer, especially as he’s been one of Tottenham’s most consistent performers (when he’s been fit enough to play).
