Beckham sounds out Milan for loan

LONDON (AP) David Beckham is in talks with the Los Angeles Galaxy about going to AC Milan on another loan and then returning to Major League Soccer again.

The 34-year-old midfielder must join a European club on loan in January to be considered for England coach Fabio Capello's squad for June's World Cup.

"That deal I think hasn't been fully finalized yet but I know he is interested in going to Milan and he's in conversation with the LA Galaxy about doing a loan again and discussing coming back," Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber said. "But those discussions are ongoing and haven't really been concluded yet. David has been an important part of the history of Major League Soccer and we'd love to have him continue his commitment to the league.

"We hope that the Galaxy and David can reach some agreement that makes sense for David, the Galaxy and Major League Soccer."
