David Beckham could complete his loan move to Tottenham from the Los Angeles Galaxy over the weekend.

“He could be here on Sunday possibly, if what I’m being told on the grapevine is right,” Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp said on Friday. “The clubs are talking and there is a good chance it will happen.”

Redknapp, who said last week that he hoped to sign the former England captain on a two-month loan from the Galaxy, said Beckham is likely to attend the north London club’s FA Cup match against Charlton on Sunday.

“Hopefully he will come to the game,” Redknapp said. “I’m not 100 per cent sure, but he could be here on Sunday.”

If Beckham does join this weekend, his first match for Tottenham would likely be January 16 against former club Manchester United.

Beckham previously said the only Premier League team he would consider playing for was United, which he left in 2003 after more than a decade to join Real Madrid002E
