By on January 2, 2011 - 31 views

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has spoken with the Daily Star over the possibility of a loan move for former England captain David Beckham.

It is clear, however, that the Geordies will face tough competition with Tottenham and Everton also offering the former Manchester United pin-up a return to the Premier League.

“David Beckham is an asset to a team on a number of levels. But for a manager it’s the playing level and the fact he can deliver a ball. He has the experience and guile to play for this team, 100 per cent,” said Pardew.

“But there has been no talk about David Beckham. Perhaps I should ring him and see what he’s up to, see if he is coming home… We won’t leave any stone unturned for any player who becomes available and who we think can take the club forward.”

When asked if he would make a move for Becks, the Newcastle gaffer revealed: “That conversation will probably take place on Monday or Tuesday next week. We’re just looking at the market and making calls to see who is and isn’t available. Then we’ll have to nail it down. I will put David on the list!”
