David Beckham is set to sign for Paris St Germain, and is on route to the French capital for a medical, according to the Daily Mirror.

The former-LA Galaxy star quit the MLS last December, and has been looking for a new challenge. And it seems he will sign for the big-spending Ligue 1 leaders, after reports emerged claiming the former-England captain is heading to Paris for a medical.

The Daily Mirror article suggests Beckham has opted for Paris after turning down several offers from around the world, and claims the reasons behind the decision are primarily football-based.

The Ligue 1 club top the table in France - they sit level with Lyon on 45 points - and have progressed to the last-16 of the Champions League, where they will face Valencia.

Beckham has already won league titles in England, Spain and America, and the prospect of a fourth in France is believed to have swayed his decision.

But the report claims Carlo Ancelotti sealed the deal for the former-United star - Beckham played under Ancelotti at AC Milan.

The 37-year-old had 12 offers, according to the report, from clubs in countries as varied as China, Russia, the Middle East and South Africa. He is also thought to have had offers from North America.

Beckham has been training at Arsenal's training ground at London Colney in recent weeks, as he looks to get in shape for another season of European football.

He's set for a medical this afternoon, and amid reports that Paris St Germain have called a press conference for 5pm this evening, he could be unveiled as a PSG player before the close of the transfer window tonight.

Beckham took to his Facebook page this afternoon to confirm his flight to Paris, saying: "On way to Paris, excited. I will update you all later."
