Harry Redknapp feels Tottenham fans will be pleased if David Beckham signs a loan deal.
Despite Harry stating that he felt the deal was close, reports since have claimed that the two parties are still some way off agreeing a deal on how Beckham’s wages should be paid over the two-month period.
“They will be pleased to have him here.” Redknapp said.
“Everyone respects him. He wants to play football. Most players would sit around thinking: ‘That’s OK. I’ve got eight weeks now to sit around the pool. Go and have a game of golf, or whatever.’ But he wants to play.
“It tells you everything about him. That’s why he’s probably had such a great career. He’s always worked hard. He always puts a shift in. He’s a good trainer. You never hear anybody who ever played with him criticising him.”
Redknapp said: “He wouldn’t come if he wasn’t fit. Have you ever seen him looking fat? He’s not a punchdrunk heavyweight champion coming back, who’s washed up, skint and comes and has another fight and gets knocked out.
“He can deliver that ball.
“It isn’t any good having Peter Crouch if you can’t get the ball to him in the air.
“Beckham will go, I’m sure, ‘there you go, head that’. Not all the time, but he has the ability to do that. He will be a great asset I’m sure.”
