Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp hopes that former England captain David Beckham will have joined Spurs on a short-term loan deal by Sunday.
The White Hart Lane club have been speaking to LA Galaxy midfielder Beckham, whose American club are understood to be open to his move.
“The clubs are talking and there’s a good chance it will happen,” he said.
“It’s just sorting out the length of the loan and one or two other bits and pieces. It will probably get done.”
Redknapp – who learnt of Beckham’s interest via his son Jamie and claimed last week he wanted to join the Londoners because he likes their style of play – hopes the 35-year-old will come to watch the club’s FA Cup third round match against Charlton on Sunday.
“I think he could be here on Sunday possibly if what I’m being told on the grapevine is right,” he said. (BBC Sport)
So will David Beckham even get into the first team at White Hart Lane? The LA Galaxy midfielder has a fair few players ahead of him in the Tottenham queue but Harry Redknapp sees worth in bringing the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star to north London where he will presumably add strength in depth to a side battling on a number of fronts.
The deal will only last for a few months but may help Beckham convince Fabio Capello that he is still worthy of selection at international level.
Tottenham fans, are you happy about this signing or is there little use in signing a 35 year old has been?
