Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he may have to release club captain Ledley King.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he may have to release club captain Ledley King.

Redknapp has warned Tottenham skipper King that he must play at least 20 games this season or risk the axe next summer.

"Ledley's a difficult one," admitted the Tottenham manager, who confirmed Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker will both make their debuts against Wolves.

"He has to play this year. I can't go to the chairman and say: 'Give Ledley a contract,' if he has only played two games because he isn't going to do that.

"This is Ledley's big year, he's got to play 20 games or so, really. Ledley needs to put some games in this year to get another contract."
