Manager Harry Redknapp remains optimistic that Tottenham can sign David Beckham on loan in the next 24 hours.

The 35-year-old LA Galaxy midfielder took to the training field with his potential Spurs colleagues under the watchful eye of coaches Clive Allen and Joe Jordan.

“It’s great to have him here. We worked hard to get him here hoping that he could come and play,” said Redknapp.

Beckham’s American employers are believed to be concerned about the possibility of their star asset suffering an injury should the former England captain be allowed to make a temporary switch to North London.

During a loan spell in Italy with AC Milan last year Beckham suffered a torn left Achilles tendon causing him to miss the World Cup and the majority of the MLS season.

“No-one could have worked harder than Daniel Levy, the chairman,” continued Redknapp. “They grafted away trying to get a deal done where he could play for us. It’s a bit complicated, but you never know. We’ll see how it goes.”

The Tottenham manager added: “They work on that side of it. I’ve got the easy part. I just identify people, say ‘I’d like to get David – I think he’d be good for us’. It’s up to them. They do the hard work and put the deals on.

“He’s a fit lad, he looks like he’s in great condition, looks like he looks after himself he’s a model professional so that won’t be a problem.”
