The 33-year-old, who retired from playing at the end of the 2011-12 season after ongoing knee trouble, will take his first steps on the coaching ladder with a part-time role at the Spurs academy.

Academy manager John McDermott told Spurs’s official website: "Ledley has come through the coaching training programme undertaken by a number of senior players in recent seasons, including Scott Parker, Brad Friedel and Michael Dawson.

"We are now looking for Ledley to spend 2-3 days a week assisting our Under-18 group with their on and off pitch development.

"Using senior players as role models within our academy is a scheme we are keen to nurture and develop further."

King is currently with the club on its tour of USA and Canada. He has taken part in several Global Coaching sessions and community coaching initiatives and will combine the coaching role with his duties as club ambassador.
