David Beckham's return to the United States will be put off for two more weeks after he had his training stint with Tottenham extended.
Beckham was set to join the Los Angeles Galaxy for pre-season this week, but now with his Tottenham stint extended, he will have even less time with his MLS team despite the act the MLS season is just five weeks away.
Beckham initially had a loan deal to Tottenham scrapped by the Galaxy over insurance issues, but now he looks set to miss a chunk of the Galaxy pre-season anyway.
Beckham is in the final year of his contract with the Galaxy and reports are already surfacing suggesting Tottenham will try to sign Beckham once his MLS deal is up.
