Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp is still interested in signing David Beckham, but concedes he may not be able to offer him the first-team football he desires.
Beckham, 36, will come to the end of his contract with Los Angeles Galaxy in two weeks' time at the end of the MLS season and is expected to have a host of offers to return to Europe in January. Along with Spurs, ambitious Paris St Germain have also been linked.
But Redknapp feels the former England captain will only join a club which will give him adequate playing time, which may not be the case at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp told the Sunday Mirror: "David's a fantastic player and a great influence in and around the club. He's someone that I have always admired and is a great role model.
"I would take him, for sure but my dilemma is being able to guarantee him first-team football. I have an abundance of talent in midfield so it's difficult to work out how and when I can play him."
