On King's appointment, Mourinho said, "I am extremely pleased to be welcoming Ledley into the first team group as we continue our preparations for the new season."

"He has a tremendous affinity with this football club and the fans appreciate just how much he has accomplished as a true Spurs man both on and off the pitch. We have developed a good relationship since I arrived, and we hope to use his experience and insight to support the work we are doing with the squad."
