David Beckham Signs Two Year Deal With LA Galaxy

David Beckham may have been showing up at matches all across England, but it was announced today that he was able to agree to a two year contract with the LA Galaxy. This comes despite rumours that he was heading the Paris St Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, or even a return to Manchester United on loan. The news conference announcing the deal will be held tomorrow.

MLS' best selling jersey, and one of the biggest reasons the LA Galaxy became a household name, David Beckham had a career year last year, setting a career mark in assists and his second highest minutes total. He started the same number of game this past year as he did when he was 32.

"This was an important decision for me," Galaxy midfielder David 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."

The deal keeps him with the Galaxy through 2013, and reportedly allows him to take time for the London Olympics. In his five years with the Galaxy, Beckham was twice named to the MLS All-Star team, and was selected to the MLS Best XI team after this year. While he didn't always bowl over his critics, he did finally fall into a grove.

"I've seen first hand how popular soccer is now in the States and I'm as committed as ever to growing the game here," he added. "My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America and we look forward to spending many more years here."
