LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane believes David Beckham can continue his playing career 'for years' - and would welcome a club move for Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the Republic of Ireland international praised the impact Beckham has had in North America, as the former England captain prepares to play his last competitive game for the Galaxy, in the MLS Cup against Houston Dynamo on Saturday.

"His ability on the ball is the best I have seen," Keane told Sky Sports News. "His passing is ridiculous. He still has a few years left in him. He still has that hunger and drive.

"He's been in England for a long time, and won the Premier League, so whether he wants to go somewhere else, and win the league there, I'm not too sure."

Keane said that Beckham has not told his current team-mates where he plans to move to next, but added that whichever league in any given country, should be only too pleased to take him.

With the 37-year-old planning to depart, another high-profile player that has been recently linked with a move to the MLS is Chelsea star Lampard.

The England international's contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season, and speculation has suggested he is looking to finish his career alongside Keane in Los Angeles.

"Frank is obviously a great player." he added. "He's proven over the years to be a top professional at Chelsea and we certainly need players like Frank."
