Poll of the Day: Is Ledley King Tottenham’s greatest player of the Premier League era?

After announcing his retirement from the game, is the former England international one of the best ever to wear the white of Spurs in recent times?
Ledley King has decided to retire from football after an injury-plagued career at Tottenham that saw him lift the League Cup as well as win 21 caps for England.

Having joined the club aged 14, King went on to spend his entire career in north London, making his debut against Liverpool back in 1999.

Despite his chronic injury problems, the 31-year-old managed 323 games and 14 goals for Spurs, one famously coming in just 10 seconds in a 3-3 draw with Bradford in the 2000/2001 season.

However, his time at the club is now up and Goal.com wants to know if he warrants ‘club legend’ status at Tottenham?

Is he the greatest player ever to play for Spurs in the Premier League? Or does he fall behind the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann, David Ginola and Robbie Keane who all thrilled White Hart Lane on a regular basis?

Or is there another player, who fits the title of Tottenham's best that we have not even mentioned?
