Beckham rules out Premier League return

December 21, 2010 - London

England midfielder David Beckham has ruled out a return to the Premier League on a short-term loan during the midwinter transfer window.

The 35-year-old has spent the last two winters on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy at AC Milan.

"I have always missed playing in the Premier League since I left it almost eight years ago. It is a great league and one of the most competitive in the world," the Daily Mail quoted Beckham, as saying.

"Maybe one day I will come back here, but I have always said that it will only be for Manchester United. I am not holding my breath on that one, but we will have to wait and see," he added.

Beckham also confirmed that his move to AC Milan would not happen again.

"I won't be going back to AC Milan this time because is not possible to go onto the roster for such a short length of time," Beckham said.

"But I will be going back somewhere as I want to keep myself fit and keep myself in with a chance of getting called up for England again. To do that, I have to be somewhere so fingers crossed I can sort something out," he added.
