Beckham laughs off rumours of move to Australia

Recent reports have linked the former England international with a transfer to the A-League, but the LA Galaxy midfielder has moved to dismiss these suggestions

LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has dismissed suggestions that he is set to join an A-League team.

Football Federation Australia recently claimed that Beckham's management approached them about a 10-game loan during the MLS off-season.

However, a spokesman for the former England captain has denied those reports on television, and Beckham himself has also claimed they are false.

"No. Definitely not true," he told reporters at the Home Depot Center after a Galaxy training session on Friday.

"Bruce [Arena] told me that this morning – the first I'd heard about it. Like I said that's the first I'd heard of that, this morning."

Arena, who was present at the press conference, jokingly added: "We've booked his tickets already."

LA Galaxy take on the Seattle Sounders in the second leg of the Western Conference final on Sunday.
