Redknapp dropped a huge hint that he was looking into the option of signing the England veteran on a permanent deal, although Galaxy have been quick to rule out any permanent move this January. Furthermore, the American club have still yet to give any indication that they will allow Beckham to leave during the MLS close season; after picking up a nasty injury in Milan, the club may decide that they want to abolish all risk and keep the player in America.
Let's also remember that we are not the only side looking to sign Beckham. After previously announcing that he didn't wish to return to England, a host of European clubs are reportedly also chasing David's signature and with the player running close to his expiration date, he may fancy one last challenge in a different country.
Yes it would be good to see the player come in. He had two good spells in Milan and could aid Aaron Lennon in the crossing department. But let's not forget this deals not yet completed.
