Beckham turns down Notts County move

LA Galaxy's David Beckham has ruled out a move to English League Two club Notts County.

The 34-year old has been linked with a return to England but has turned down the chance to reunite with former national team boss Sven-Goran Eriksson at Meadow Lane.

He did however keep the door ajar for a return to the Premier League in order to give himself every opportunity to force his way into Fabio Capello's World Cup squad.

"I've got a great relationship with the chief executive there, Tim Leiweke, and he's a football man as well," Beckham said.

"They know I have to come back. If it upsets a few people, I can't do anything about that.

"I keep saying how much I do enjoy playing over there and how committed I am to the Galaxy, but I want to give myself every chance to be involved in the squad.

"I've got plans, but my main focus is on this game on Wednesday and then the finish of the MLS season.

"After that, everybody knows that I'll be coming back to play somewhere. I have my plans. It's unfair for me to say what will be happening.

"It's always good to have options and obviously, I have got options.

"Milan have made me aware that they want me to go back there, play there and train there, and I'm more than happy with that.

"I have got other options, though. Once I have that time to decide, I will. Clubs have made offers already, three or four of them.

"But not Notts County, no. I haven't spoken to Sven for a while."
