QPR transfers: Harry Redknapp won’t rule out David Beckham move
QPR transfers: Harry Redknapp says David Beckham can still play in the Premier League amid reports linking the veteran to the R's
Harry Redknapp believes LA Galaxy star David Beckham could still play in the Premier League, with the new Queens Park Rangers boss hinting at a possible move in the January transfer window.
The former England captain is set to leave the Major League Soccer outfit in December, with Paris Saint-Germain among a host of clubs reportedly interested in the midfielder.
Redknapp, who replaced Mark Hughes on Saturday, allowed Beckham to use Tottenham’s training facilities in January 2011 after the QPR boss failed to sign the former Real Madrid man on loan for Spurs.
And the new Hoops boss is adamant the 37-year-old could still perform in the English top flight.
“I’m sure he could still play in the Premier League,” Redknapp told BBC Sport.
“I’ve not discussed it with the chairman so we’d have to look at that.”
He added: “He’s a top fantastic player. We had him training at Tottenham and it was amazing [to have him] round the place. He is absolute class.
“David could still be a great asset to anyone. Just having him round the place, showing people how to train and look after yourself. His professionalism is second to none.”
QPR remain bottom of the table and without a victory in 13 games after a 3-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.
“We’ve got to get cracking pretty quickly,” he said. “The target is [to finish the season] fourth from bottom.
“We’ve just got to get out of trouble. We’ve got to try and survive. Four points from 13 games makes it difficult but we’ve got to do it.”
