Tottenham captain Ledley King has backed the club's plans for a new training centre in Enfield.

King told the official club website: "I'm fully behind what the Club is trying to achieve here. I know how much it would benefit the club and the borough if we get the go-ahead.

"I captain the side and have represented my country but I know that none of this would have been possible if I had not been coached through the Spurs academy system."

Ledley added: "And its not just about what happens on the pitch, I often get the chance to see and help with the work the club is doing out and about in the local community, something I wish I'd had when we were growing up."
