Former England captain David Beckham could be offered a loan move back to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp admitting his interest in the 35-year-old.
Beckahm, who plies his trade for LA Galaxy in the MLS (Major League Soccer), is currently on a break since the MLS season restarts on 15 March but had admitted to looking for a move back to Europe to breathe life into his hopes of rejoining the England squad.
We'll contact LA Galaxy to see if they will let him go and if David is up for a three-month deal, we will definitely be interested, said Redknapp.
Beckham has had loan spells at Italian club AC Milan in 2009 and 2010, during the MLS off-season, but has so far rejected any move back to England stating that, as a Manchester United fan, a move back would be too close to home.
But Redknapp remains confident he can lure him back to the Premier League, where he has won a host of trophies while at Manchester United.
I'm sure he can still do a great job at the top level, otherwise I wouldn't bother, Redknapp said. He isn't going to come here and get big money - we aren't massive payers at this club.
But he wants to come over here to the freezing cold and play football. Doesn't that tell you something about the boy that he lives in Los Angeles and might be a billionaire?
Spurs currently lie five points off the top of the Premier League and a move would give Beckham the chance to prove that he is still capable of performing at the top level of club football. But what would perk the veteran's interest is that it would give him a greater chance of adding to his 115 after England manager Fabio Capello urged him to return to Europe to prove his fitness.
Redknapp went on, I'm not saying he's going to come in and take Aaron Lennon's place but he would be a good option. I am sure Aaron would love to work with him, on his crossing and everything, and on his final ball. He would be a good influence around the place.
If Beckham was to move back to the Premier League, from where last departed after things turned sour with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, it would be yet another chapter in his glittering career.
