Beckham denies A-League link

David Beckham has denied he will be playing in Australia during the MLS off-season after reports linked him with a move to the A-League.

• Beckham to decide future
• Beckham considered Brazil stint
• Blog: A lifetime of learning

Football Federation Australia released a statement on Friday confirming that Beckham's management had expressed interest in joining the A-League next month, but a spokesperson for the 37-year-old has dismissed the rumours.

"[There is] always enormous interest from clubs across the world in signing David," a member of the Beckham camp said in a statement: "There is always enormous interest from clubs across the world in signing David as a player.

"There are absolutely no plans to play in Australia, David is completely focused on the MLS play offs and winning another Championship with the Galaxy."

The comments are a complete contradiction to the FFA's reports that they had made contact with "an agent representing the management" of Beckham.

"The approach from David Beckham's people is another sign of how much the Hyundai A-League has grown in stature on a global basis," the FFA statement said. "Beckham is a superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the Hyundai A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono. But this approach remains at a very preliminary stage."

Melbourne Heart and Perth Glory expressed interest in signing the midfielder on Friday and the FFA was believed to be ready to help broker a deal.
