Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he has not totally given up hope of David Beckham playing for the club during a month-long stint at White Hart Lane.
The 35-year-old LA Galaxy star has agreed to train with Spurs until 10 February, but it was thought he would not actually play in a short-term loan.
But Redknapp made a U-turn on Sunday, telling BBC Sport he was wrong to write off the deal due to insurance issues.
“Hopefully it could happen,” he said. “[Talks] are still ongoing,”
Speaking after Tottenham’s 3-0 FA Cup third round win over Charlton, Redknapp added: “I don’t know what the issues are… and I don’t know the answer. I wish I knew.
“It’s sorted about above my head. I don’t think there’s a problem with the insurance, I had that wrong.”
Earlier on Sunday, Spurs issued a statement which said: “David will train with the club until 10 February when he will be required to return to LA Galaxy ahead of the start of the MLS season.”
Redknapp subsequently described any chance of his playing for the club as a “no-goer”. (BBC Sport)
It had looked yesterday that a deal to bring David Beckham to Tottenham was off due to insurance issues but now apparently a move could be back on, perhaps the LA Galaxy man is willing to cover such costs himself if indeed he does get crocked whilst plying his trade at White Hart Lane?
Clearly however the longer it takes to pin the England veteran down the less time he actually has to show off his ability back in the Premier League. Any move for the 35 year old would be for about two months although some people are speculating that when Beckham’s MLS contract comes to an end in November then he may well be approached to sign a permanent deal back in Europe and clearly if he is to move on loan to Spurs then some may think that this is in preparation ahead of him signing on the dotted line when his American adventure is done and dusted.
