Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is keen to sign David Beckham when his contract expires in November.

The former England captain trained with the club last January but both Spurs and LA Galaxy failed to agree terms in order to finalise a temporary deal.

Redknapp, however, is a keen admirer of the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder and would happily sign the 36-year-old when the transfer window re-opens in January.

“If David wants to come to Tottenham I’d welcome him with open arms,” Redknapp told The Sun.

“He’s definitely still good enough to play in the Premier League.

“His game was never about pace so whether he’s quick or not isn’t an issue.

“David’s unique quality is his use of the ball and his ability to pick out a player with a pinpoint pass. He is unbelievable and still an exceptional talent.

“I know first hand because we had him here last winter and he was terrific around the place. You couldn’t find a nicer fella and a better professional.

“He’s the best example there is for any young player, how he looks after himself, how he trains and how he’s stayed an ordinary guy despite his extraordinary success.

“He is worth his weight in gold, he’d be an asset for any club. I’d have him here, that’s for sure.

“He wouldn’t be able to play until the January transfer window opens, though, because we’ve already lodged our 25 players with the Premier League. But he’d be a great one to have around the club again.”

QPR are expected to rival the North London outfit for Beckham’s signature after Neil Warnock admitted his admiration for the LA Galaxy star.
