Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson hopes to bring David Beckham to Leicester in a player-coach role.

The 36-year-old's contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy ends later this year and, with a place in Great Britain's Olympic squad up for grabs, he has been heavily linked with a move back to England.

QPR and Tottenham, with whom he trained last winter, have been touted as possible destinations, but Leicester boss Eriksson is hoping to link up once again with the man who captained England during his tenure as manager.

Eriksson told The Times: "I have already had that discussion with him. I spoke to him about Leicester.

"Beckham, he will never say no to me - he says, 'Sven, we'll see, we'll see'.

"The big thing is what he wants to do when his contract finishes in LA. Will he want to go on playing?"
