Redknapp cools Beckham talk

FOOTBALL: Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he may have to shelve plans to sign David Beckham on loan if the former England captain is only available until March. Beckham, 35, is due back in America for LA Galaxy’s first match of the 2011 MLS season on 15 March. Redknapp said: “I’d like him, I’m a great fan of his. But if it’s only going to be for eight or nine games, it’s a difficult one.”
