AC Milan last night confirmed that David Beckham will join the Serie A side on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy. The former England captain will join up with the club on January 7.
The length of the deal is still not clear with Beckham expected to return to Los Angeles for the start of the MLS season in early April. Milan have said that they have no expectations of signing a longer deal with the player.
Beckham's decision is motivated by his desire to retain his place in the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers in spring. But the return to form of David Bentley and Aaron Lennon under Harry Redknapp at Spurs will put Becks under even more pressure to retain his place in Capello's plans.
