Queens Park Rangers co-owner Amit Bhatia has confirmed the club's intention of offering Tottenham target David Beckham a playing contract in November reports the Daily Mail.

The 36-year-old former England captain will become a free agent when his LA Galaxy contract expires at the end of the MLS season, and has set his sights on a return to England.

Last year, Beckham linked up with Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane to maintain his fitness during the American close-season, but the Spurs boss has signalled his intentions to sign him on a full-time playing basis this year.

"I don't think you would ever say no to David Beckham," he said. "He would bring a lot to any club."

But Tottenham could now face competition for his signature from another London-based Barclays Premier League club after Bhatia revealed:


 

"Would we be prepared to offer him a chance to play for QPR? The answer to that question is yes, we would be willing to make him an offer.

"It's something Tony [Fernandes] and I have discussed and we would throw our hat into the ring for someone like him."

Asked whether he believed Rangers had a realistic chance of making such a high-profile signing, the Loftus Road chief remained fairly optimistic.

"It's up to Beckham — or any other player of that calibre — to decide whether he wants to join QPR," he continued.

"I'm not certain Beckham would want to join a newly promoted club. If he wanted to come to London maybe he would choose Tottenham."
