Tottenham icon Ledley King feels the club needs to leave White Hart Lane.

King believes Tottenham will have a better chance of attracting elite players to the club if they make progress with their plans to build a new stadium.

“It’s important,” he said. “The new training ground that we moved to during the summer is one of the best I’ve seen and improvements like these take me back to the decision I had to make as a young player.

“I was at Leyton Orient before I moved to Tottenham and the facilities at Spurs made me want to come and be part of this club. There is an emphasis on bringing top young players to the club, so a training ground and a new stadium can only help in that respect.”
