As the MLS season is at an end the former England skipper is eager to get himself a club until the end of March and despite their being a host of sides ready to make him offers it looks like Spurs have won the race.
Redknapp confirmed on Sunday that Spurs are in talks with LA Galaxy about a deal for the 35-year-old, but one of Beckham's representatives has made it clear it is a loan deal only.
"At the moment we are waiting on the decision of LA Galaxy with regards to a loan move," the spokesman said.
"The loan would be a short one until the start of the MLS season. David would then return and play a full season with the Galaxy.
"Tottenham are one of many clubs who are interested but as yet we have not got into any detailed conversations as we are waiting on LA Galaxy's decision."
