QPR fear Beckham rates them "too small"

QPR fear they've already missed out on LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham.

Beckham's contract with the MLS club expires next month and the 36-year-old is determined to continue playing at least until the 2012 London Olympics, where he hopes to captain the Great Britain team.

Beckham has met Tony Fernandes, QPR's owner, but a club executive told the Observer: "We do not think it is likely now. Also Neil Warnock [the manager] is not completely sure where he would fit into the team."

Asked if Beckham's financial requirements may be too high, the executive said: "Actually I think he thinks we are too small a club."
