Ledley King is quite literally on his last leg.
The former England international has played well in what games he's made an appearance, but knowing when the center back is going to suit up is like flipping a coin and calling heads or tails. Of the 18 league matches and handful of games in Tottenham's failed Europa campaign, King has only made 11 appearances.
This isn't to downplay how well King has played this season nor how much he's contributed to their current third-place standing in the league table.
But King's knees aren't getting any better, and for Tottenham to make a serious climb to the Premier League summit, they'll need a new defender to put in King's place. Where better to find him than this winter's transfer window?
That said, I give you the best possible replacements at center back for King
