Beckham: I am unlikely to return to Premier League

David Beckham is unlikely to play in the Premier League again, he has admitted. "We are very happy here in LA," he said to Sky Sports News HD, "and have been for five years.

We love and miss England but myself playing back there, I don't know. Things change very quickly but right now I am part of LA Galaxy. I will look at myself at the end of the season and see how my body feels and how I feel physically and if I feel good I will continue to play. But I have always said that Manchester United is my one love and to play for another club would be difficult for me."

He also said he was unsure about his international career. "Who knows what my involvement in England will be? At 36, I still want to be available for England. Whether I get picked or not who knows?"
