Former England captain David Beckham is to continue training with the Tottenham first team for a further two weeks.

The LA Galaxy midfielder, whom Spurs manager Harry Redknapp initially tried to sign, has been with the club during the MLS off-season in order to keep in shape and was expected to return tomorrow. He will now remain until 22 February.

Meanwhile, Spurs defender Ledley King yesterday underwent groin surgery in Germany and is expected to return to training in a fortnight. The 30-year-old has not featured since the 2-1 win at Fulham last October and was sent last week for the operation.
