David Beckham is not closing the door on a return to the Barclays Premier League Premier League as he prepares to start the final season of his contract with Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 35-year-old former England captain trained with Tottenham throughout January and February, and was set to play for them on loan until red tape held the deal up. But with his stay in America set to come to an end in November, Beckham is not ruling out finishing his career in England.
He said in the People: "I had a great career in England for 12-13 years - who knows if I will play there again?"
He added: "I'm getting older now and I don't have many years left. This is my last contract year in the USA, but who knows what will happen?"
LA Galaxy kick-off their MLS season on Tuesday against Seattle.
