David Beckham is planning on another loan move to Europe next month to maintain match fitness and impress England boss Fabio Cappello.
The former England captain has been forced into international retirement by Capello after missing the 2010 World Cup in South Africa with injury during a similar loan spell at AC Milan last season.
But just like he was told his International career was over when he moved to the States and like he was told his Real Madrid career was over when he agreed a pre-contract agreement with LA Galaxy, we know Beckham does not quit without an effort.
Speaking as he collected a lifetime achievement award in Birmingham this week Beckham said:
"I will be going back somewhere as I want to keep myself fit and keep myself in with a chance of getting called up for England again. To do that, I have to be somewhere. so fingers crossed I can sort something out.
"I have always missed playing in the Premier League since I left it almost eight years ago.
"It is a great league and one of the most competitive in the world. Maybe one day I will come back here, but I have always said that it will only be for Manchester United. I am not holding my breath on that one, but we will have to wait and see."
Now the big question for all LA Galaxy and David Beckham fans is where will the former Real Madrid ace find himself in the new year with demand for the star expected to be great.
Here is my top 10 predictions for where the England star will be playing. Enjoy!
