Becks Trains At Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has confirmed the rumour that David Beckham is training at Arsenal’s Hertfordshire training base.

However, the Frenchman insists that the Gunners will not be signing the 37-year-old former England captain.

Wenger claims that there is no benefit to the Gunners having Becks around. But that Arsenal were happy to let the veteran midfielder train with them to get fit, provided he “behaves well.”

Beckham is still deciding whether or not to continue his football career, after leaving LA Galaxy when his contract there was up.

The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan star recently bought a house in London, leading to speculation that he could seek a club in England’s capital from which to see out his illustrious career.

West Ham United and QPR have both admitted to coveting Beckham’s signature, as have other clubs across the globe.

However, Wenger is adamant that Arsenal will not be Beckham’s last footballing port of call.

“He called me," Wenger said, explaining Beckham’s presence at Arsenal.

"He has asked to come here and to work on his fitness. He has not done anything for a long, long time. [It's] purely for fitness. There's no speculation about signing or anything."

Asked what Becks brings to the table by training at Arsenal, Wenger added: "Nothing. To help somebody. We are open for people who behave well when they come here."
