David Beckham arrived at Tottenham to take a fitness test on Monday before starting his month long training stint with the Premier League club.

Despite talks collapsing over a two-month playing loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy, the midfielder and Spurs are still hopeful that a deal can be revived.

Beckham was taking the test at Tottenham’s training ground east of London.

Beckham’s spell with Spurs is due to end on Feb. 10, with the Galaxy expecting the former England captain back to prepare for the Major League Soccer season opener at the Seattle Sounders on March 15.

The 35-year-old Beckham is trying to stay fit to boost his chances of being recalled to the England team. He has made 115 appearances the most by an England outfield player.
