Tony Fernandes has issued a plea to David Beckham for him to come join the revolution at Queens Park Rangers.

The Lotus F1 owner's investment has raised hopes around Loftus Road that the club can stay in the Barclays Premier League, despite a difficult start following promotion from the Npower Championship.

Beckham's contract with LA Galaxy is set to run out, and Fernandes is hoping he can tempt the former England captain to the Hoops.

"It will be a massive statement of intent for us if we bring Beckham back in January," he said.

"We have been led to believe he would like to be at a bigger club but it's for us to persuade him that we have bigger ambitions and he can be part of that.

"Whether that fits in with Neil Warnock and the squad, who knows.

"Ultimately, the manager has to decide.


"I can give him the vision that I've got the balls to do it. It may fail but nothing ventured, nothing gained."

"Environment, love, care and attention — we can offer that to Beckham," he added.

"And Beckham's advisors want to talk because our vision is a long-term one, with lots of things David can do in Asia with me."

The Hoops invested heavily on the final day of the transfer window, bringing in three players, including England winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Defeat to Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic have sandwiched a victory at Everton for The Hoops, and they head into Monday's game with Newcastle Untied searching for their first home league win of the campaign.
