Beckham considering permanent switch

David Beckham will consider a permanent move back to the Premier League on a free transfer as he prepares for his final season with Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham is currently training with Tottenham Hotspur with a view to securing a short-term loan. And while negotiations with his MLS club appear to have reached a stalemate, his time at Spurs has wetted Beckham's appetite for a return to English football.

A close insider told ESPNsoccernet: "All the focus of attention has been on whether David Beckham will be allowed to play for Spurs on loan, but little has been said about what he plans to do when he is free to choose, and there is no question he has enjoyed himself so much training with Spurs that the possibility of him considering a permanent move back to English football cannot be ruled out."

Beckham will be 36-years-old when he becomes a free agent next January, although he has made it clear that he intends to play on until he is 40.

The former Manchester United midfielder would prefer to remain in London if he returns to the Premier League, with Spurs and Fulham tipped to offer the veteran a contract.

Fulham owner Mohamed Al-Fayed enjoys a close personal relationship with the Beckhams and would offer the superstar a far ranging role at Craven Cottage, as both a player and ambassador for youth development.
