Mystery surrounds the proposed loan deal for David Beckham with conflicting reports coming out of both camps.
As the Charlton game drew closer, it seemed likely that an announcement confirming the deal would be made to the fans prior to kick off. However a statement from the official Spurs website before the game, declared that Beckham would only be training with the club until his return to MLS side L A Galaxy.
Subsequently it transpired that due to a problem with his insurance, he would not be playing for Spurs and we would therefore only see him at the training ground.
That seemed to be the end of it and while reports maintained that Harry Redknapp had given up on the deal, Beckham’s advisers were apparently quoted as saying that they were hopeful of the loan still going through.
Beckham is at the club today undergoing some fitness tests prior to him training on Tuesday. In all the confusion, the one thing we can be certain of is that this story isn’t over yet.
