Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has again admitted his interest in signing David Beckham later this year.
Los Angeles Galaxy star Beckham has just returned to the United States having spent the last few weeks training with Spurs during the Major League Soccer off-season.
Tottenham failed in their attempt to land the 35-year-old on loan during that time, but Redknapp has reiterated his desire to bring Beckham back to the club when his Galaxy contract expires in November.
The Spurs boss said: “He's a busy lad, his life must be unbelievable, but when you get a lad who wants to come here and train every day when he could be sitting at home having a month's rest, it tells you everything about him. He loves football.
“He's been great to have around the place and he's just a top-class bloke, a proper good lad.
“He's welcome back any time. I think he would have brought something to the team if we could have got him on loan.
“But who knows? It's not impossible that he may be back here in the future. He can still play, he still pick a pass out.
“I've not looked into bringing him back in November - the chairman would need to look at that, I don't know what the financial side of it would be - I wouldn't have a clue how much it would cost.”
