Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp hopes to rumble AC Milan hopes with a last ditch bid for LA Galaxy star David Beckham. Seven-time European champions Milan are close to agreeing a loan deal for the LA Galaxy star, starting in January, but ambitious Redknapp refuses to give up.

Redknapp admitted: "I'm sure his missus would enjoy the shopping in Portsmouth far more than in Milan. David is a player I think about and you can't tell me he wouldn't make some great crosses for Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.

"He is a terrific player. I haven't made an enquiry but maybe I will do. David wants to play football, he is still in great nick. He would be a good loan signing. I would take him for sure."
