Tottenham are making a sensational last-ditch effort to land LA Galaxy star David Beckham. The Daily Star says new Spurs boss Harry Redknapp wants to bring Beckham back to London and Tottenham, where he spent his junior days before joining Manchester United.

AC Milan are locked in talks with MLS over a short-term loan deal for Beckham, but terms are still to be signed off, so leaving the door open for Spurs to pull off an amazing - and typically Harry - smash-and-grab.
