David Beckham could be set for a sensational return to England after Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp confirmed he would try to sign the midfielder on loan.

In what was a U-turn from his recent denials of interest in Beckham, Redknapp revealed he would ask chairman Daniel Levy to persuade Los Angeles Galaxy to lend the 35-year-old to Spurs until the Major League Soccer season begins in March.

"It's whether Galaxy will let him go on loan," said Redknapp, well aware of Beckham's softened stance on a Premier League return having previously stated he would only go back to Old Trafford. "If they did, we'd be interested and plenty of others would be as well."

He added: "He'd be a good influence to have, the type of lad you want at your club and he'd give the whole place a lift.

"He's been a fantastic player and he is someone the players would look up to and respect. And I still think he can do a job for sure.

"He had no pace when he was 17 but he had a great brain and a great delivery and strike. He's a worker.

"It's not as if he's suddenly lost blistering pace. He makes the ball do it and plays around people."
