Tottenham boss Redknapp confirms new injury for King

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is disappointed with Ledley King's latest injury.

After getting the all-clear from a knee problem, he pulled up suddenly and was replaced by Sebastien Bassong.

King has struggled with injuries and looks certain to sit out the Bolton Cup game at least.

Redknapp said: "It looks like a bit of a tear. Ledley was so solid during the match. He makes the game look easy.

"He is such a fantastic player. He gives a real presence to the team and a real air of confidence to the players and me. It is a bit of a loss but (Sebastien) Bassong came in and finished the job."
