Tottenham boss Redknapp would love to sign Beckham

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says he'd be delighted to sign LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham.

The arrival in February of Beckham gave Tottenham a palpable shot of adrenalin, even if he was restricted to a training role, and the manager does not rule out chances of a return once the 36 year-old is out of contract at Los Angeles Galaxy next month.

He told the Telegraph: "I was so impressed with David as a person, as a player. He was fantastic to have around the club, a class act. For any young player looking at him, he's a great role model. There was no attitude to him, no 'side'.

"The problem I'd have is that David would want to play regularly, and I couldn't guarantee him that at this stage. It's difficult: I have Aaron Lennon coming back, Rafael van der Vaart playing off the right. I have lots of options. I could play Gareth Bale on one side and Luka Modric on the other. Sandro is also looking like he could end up a top player. Then there's Scott Parker. So to bring David in and not play him would be a problem."
