BBC claims that former England captain David Beckham is edging ever closer to a move to his hometown club Tottenham Hotspur.
Harry Redknapp is a keen admirer of the 35-year-old and is very adamant the former Manchester United midfielder will make the move to White Hart Lane as soon as this weekend.
Beckham is currently at American side LA Galaxy following his move from Real Madrid a few years ago, but since then he has returned to Europe for two separate loan spells with Italian giants AC Milan.
Beckham has expressed a desire to play once more in the Premier League before retiring and Tottenham fits the bill.
Fergie unsure on Becks move.
Manchester United manager and Beckham’s former boss Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t believe Beckham will create much of an impact on the Premier League under the short time he is expected to return for.
Sir Alex also believes tat Beckham’s age may limit him to the amount of games he plays, especially with Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale in such good form for Harry Redknapp’s side.
However, according to The Guardian, Harry Redknapp feels that Beckham can still be a success in the Premier League and will be the ideal replacement for the soon departing David Bentley.
Spurs eye Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Tottenham Hotspur have become the latest Premier League side to take a strong interest in young Southampton midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The 17-year-old has been an integral part of Saints’ season so far which has seen the League One side climb to 2nd in the table, but there is a huge amount of interest in the winger who is being regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the country.
FansFc.com reports that Redknapp is looking to make a January transfer bid for the starlet, and then loan him back to Saints for the rest of the season.
Oxlade-Chamberlain came from the Saints youth academy where current Tottenham star Gareth Bale used to ply his trade before joining White Hart Lane in 2007.
