David Beckham´s representative in Spain has claimed the former England captain has not met Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd over a possible move back to the Premiership.

It was reported on Friday morning that the 31-year-old Real Madrid midfielder and his wife Victoria had held a meeting with the Magpies chief at Claridges Hotel in London.

However, Beckham´s spokesman in Spain, Simon Oliveira, told PA Sport: "David and Victoria didn´t meet with Freddy Shepherd and they haven´t discussed a move to Newcastle. David dropped Victoria at Claridges to have a meeting with her publishers regarding her new book. It just so happened that Shepherd was also there."
