Manager Harry Redknapp has insisted David Beckham is "welcome back any time" at Tottenham after the midfielder returned to Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham trained with Spurs during Major League Soccer's off-season although a proposed loan move fell through.

Redknapp has no immediate plans to sign the 35-year-old when his MLS contract expires in November but a further training spell could be arranged.

"He's been great to have around, he's welcome back any time," Redknapp said.

Beckham had hoped to turn out for Spurs when he began his six-week training spell with the club in January but negotiations between the Galaxy and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy broke down.

When you get a lad who wants to come here and train every day when he could be sitting at home having a month's rest, it tells you everything about him

And speaking ahead of Tuesday's Premier League game against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road Redknapp admitted that there have yet to be any discussions about a potential return for the former England captain.

"I think he would like to see what the future holds for him," he reasoned.

"He can still play, he still pick a pass out. I've not looked into bringing him back in November - the chairman would need to look at that, I don't know what the financial side of it would be."

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder is likely to feature in the Galaxy's season opener against Seattle Sounders on 15 March.

And commenting on Beckham's willingness to uproot to London for six weeks of training, Redknapp said: "He's a busy lad, his life must be unbelievable but when you get a lad who wants to come here and train every day when he could be sitting at home having a month's rest, it tells you everything about him."
