Man Utd great Beckham signs two-year deal with LA Galaxy

David Beckham has re-signed with MLS Cup winners LA Galaxy for a further two years.

The 36-year old midfield veteran's initial five-year deal with the club expired at the end of 2011 and it appeared as though he was set to head back to Europe but the Galaxy have confirmed that a new contract has been signed with Beckham delighted to stay put.

"This was an important decision for me," Beckham told the club's official website. "I had many offers from clubs from around the world, however, I'm still passionate about playing in America and winning trophies with the Galaxy.

"I've seen firsthand how popular soccer is now in the States and I'm as committed as ever to growing the game here. My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America and we look forward to spending many more years here."

Head coach Bruce Arena was pleased to see Beckham pledge his future to the club following a brilliant 2011 season.

"I am thrilled that David has chosen to re-join the Galaxy, especially as he had numerous options where he could continue his career," Arena said.

"I felt that he was one of the best players in all of MLS last season and we could not have achieved the success that we did without him. We look forward to trying to replicate that success this season with David once again in a Galaxy uniform."
