David Beckham is to continue training with Tottenham for a further two weeks.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder has been spending part of the Major League Soccer off-season with Tottenham in order to keep in shape.

"David Beckham has extended his training spell at the club until February 22," Tottenham said in a statement.

"The England midfielder will now return to Los Angeles to report for pre-season training with LA Galaxy on February 24."


Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp initially tried to sign Beckham on a short-term loan, but Spurs could not agree a deal with the Galaxy.

But with the 35-year-old former England captain out of contract in November, Redknapp has been keen to maintain a strong relationship with him with a view to a possible future signing.
