David Beckham's impending move to Paris St Germain has sparked delight from the Ligue 1 side's squad.

The former England captain has been heavily linked with a move to the French side, with his contract at La Galaxy set to run out later this year.

Despite Tottenham Hotspur's interest, Beckham appears certain to make the move to Ligue 1, and several of the squad can't wait for the arrival.

Kevin Gameiro said: "I admired him when I was kid. So playing with him would be really strange to me!"

 

Sylvain Armand said: "When I joined Paris, you could not tell me: 'Here, you will play with Beckham one day.' It is a new sign the club has changed its era.

"Considering his experience, he could only bring a lot of things to the group."

Christophe Jallet added: "We all know hiring very famous players is part of the new politics at the club.

"Between us we don't really talk about Beckham. We just have some jokes sometimes. His interest in PSG? It is an honour. Personally, I have never played beside a world star like him."

Spurs were set to sign Beckham at the start of the year, however, they couldn't afford the insurance premium to sign the midfielder on loan.

That Tottenham target was also linked with a move to Queens Park Rangers, but now appears destined for a transfer to PSG.
