Ledley King rules the back-line at White Hart Lane, according to Harry Redknapp.

Boss Redknapp had praise for King, who can only rarely train, after the goalless draw with Aston Villa last Saturday.

"He's quick, he's powerful, he's got everything" said the manager.

"He played against two fantastic strikers and did a great job."

"Ledley's a fantastic player," Redknapp continued.

"It's hard because Sebastien Bassong played so well at Leeds, but Ledley's a special player and that's why when he's fit, I play him."
