Beckham signs new two-year deal with LA Galaxy

Los Angeles Galaxy won't have to miss David Beckham as the former England captain has extended his contract with them for another two years.

David Beckham has re-signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy, agreeing to a new two-year contract with the Major League Soccer club.

The 36-year-old former England captain signed the deal on Wednesday after turning down a chance to move back to Europe with Paris Saint-Germain.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Beckham said: “I had many offers from clubs from around the world, however, I’m still passionate about playing in America and winning trophies with the Galaxy.”

Beckham made the surprise move to the Galaxy in 2007, joining from Real Madrid on a five-year deal. But he took until last season to lift his first trophy in the United States, winning the MLS Cup in November.—Sapa-AP
