David Beckham, # 77, Has Medical For Spurs


On Tuesday, Beckham wore a light blue hat and Spurs training top as the coaches Tim Sherwood, Clive Allen and Joe Jordan put the players through their paces. Beckham's training kit bore the number 77, however he is not yet registered to play for Spurs.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is delighted to have David Beckham, the former England captain, in a blue Spurs shirt out on the pitch.

"It's great to have him here. We worked hard to get him here hoping that he could come and play," Redknapp said. "No one could have worked harder than Daniel Levy, the chairman. They grafted away trying to get a deal done where he could play for us. It's a bit complicated, but you never know. We'll see how it goes.

"They work on that side of it. I've got the easy part. I just identify people, say 'I'd like to get David – I think he'd be good for us'. It's up to them. They do the hard work and put the deals on.

"He's a fit lad, he looks like he's in great condition, looks like he looks after himself. He's a model professional so that won't be a problem. Whether it will be possible to do it, I'm not sure."

David Beckham trained with Tottenham Hotspur for the first time today. The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder was yesterday given the OK to join in with the Spurs squad after completing a series of fitness tests at the club's training ground in Chigwell, Essex.

Beckham has not played for an English club since he featured for Manchester United on the final day of the 2002-03 season.
