Tottenham legend Ledley King is convinced they can be title contenders in the next two years.

King won the League Cup during his time at White Hart Lane but reckons Andre Villas-Boas' current crop can develop into title-winners.

"I rate the current Spurs team very highly," King told the BBC.

"I think we've got a young and ambitious manager who's great and is going to do well for the club.

"I think we've got a great group of players at a good age where they're improving all the time and reaching their peak.

"The way the team are progressing at the minute, hopefully in the next year or two they will be really challenging for the Premier League."
