David Beckham has hinted at a loan deal somewhere down the track so he can have a better chance of making England's 2010 World Cup squad.

The LA Galaxy midfielder recently enjoyed a five-month stint with Italian giants AC Milan and says he may go on loan again if it helps his chance with England manager Fabio Capello.

"At the moment my priority is the rest of the season and staying in every squad for England and representing my country," he said.

"Going forward, I want to be at the World Cup. But even if I go on loan to Milan or another club [in December], it doesn't guarantee me a place at the World Cup. Once the season is over, I'll decide what I do from then on.

"But the England manager has made it very clear to me that I need to be playing at European level. I'd always regret it if I didn't do everything to give myself a chance to be involved in that."
