David Beckham ‘Not Moving to Australia’

David Beckham has denied reports that he’s planning to re-locate to Australia.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) had claimed that Beckham's management team had approached them about a 10-game move to Oz once the US MLS season ends in two weeks' time.
However, Beckham's camp has now released a statement to quash the rumours.
A spokesman for Becks told Sky Sports: "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."
An FFA spokesman had previously claimed: "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.
"Beckham is a superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono. But this approach remains at a very preliminary stage."
Becks was recently reported to have been offered a presenting gig on a US TV sports show, suggesting he could enjoy a career in punditry once he retires from the game.
