West Ham bid to bring Beckham back to Premier League

West Ham are looking to entice David Beckham back to the Premier League. The club’s co-owner David Sullivan is looking to rebuild the Hammers squad after a difficult season which saw them almost relegated.

'I’d love [to sign] David Beckham. He has massive cult status in east London and still has a house near Bishop’s Stortford, not far from our training ground,' Sullivan told the Daily Mail. 'He’s from Chingford, which is our heartland. We are the club of east London and Essex.'

'If AC Milan didn’t want him in January and if he still wanted to do it, I’d love to have him. He seems a remarkable professional.'

Sullivan has also attempted to resign former West Ham midfielder Joe Cole with a ‘name your price’ offer but the England international has rejected the offer despite being out of contract with Chelsea this summer.

'We’ve asked Joe to name a price but he said no,' Sullivan told the Daily Mail.
