Tottenham captain Ledley King hopes to soon return from a groin injury.

Tottenham have won only two Premier League matches in King's absence but they dramatically defeated derby rivals Arsenal last weekend and a midweek win over Werder Bremen booked a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages.

The 30-year-old is therefore keen to regain full fitness and help Spurs in their exciting endeavours at home and abroad, however, the nature of his injury has been a hurdle.

"It has been a bit of a complicated one, not as straightforward as the ones I have had before," King told Sky Sports News.

"So at the moment there is no time limit but we are hoping (it will be) soon."
