Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said he is "definitely interested" in bringing LA Galaxy's former England captain David Beckham to the Premier League club on loan this month.
Galaxy's Major League Soccer (MLS) season restarts on March 15 and Beckham used the break to ply his trade on loan at Italian side AC Milan in 2009 and 2010.
"We'll contact LA Galaxy to see if they will let him go and if David is up for a three-month deal, we will definitely be interested," Redknapp said. Beckham, 35, had said in October that he would not have any more loan deals, after he was ruled out of last year's World Cup by an Achilles tendon injury picked up playing for AC Milan.
Beckham, who has 115 England caps, has already turned down the offer to join Everton on loan, while Galaxy could be reluctant to let him go.

"We are waiting for his departure to become official," Allegri said. He joined Milan from Barcelona in 2008 but despite occasional flurries of his best form he lost his place in the starting XI after Milan signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho last summer.
