Redknapp: Beckham wants Spurs move

Harry Redknapp has revealed David Beckham wants to come to Tottenham as he stepped up his pursuit of the former England captain.

Spurs boss Redknapp confirmed on Friday he would try to sign the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder on loan until the Major League Soccer season begins in March.

Redknapp revealed he has not spoken to Beckham, but after his side's 1-0 victory over Fulham, the Spurs boss said: "He (Beckham) just said that he would like to come and play here at Tottenham,"

Beckham's apparent declaration further increases the possibility of him making a sensational return home seven-and-a-half years after leaving Manchester United for Real Madrid.

The final decision over whether he joins Tottenham, however, lies with the Galaxy and Redknapp admitted the north Londoners would need to move quickly.

"We'd have to (move quickly)," said Redknapp, who revealed the job of persuading the Los Angeles club lay with director of football administration Darren Eales.

"I've left it to the people at the club. I've passed it on them.

"They're talking to whoever they have to talk to at his club."
