The possibility of David Beckham returning to England to play for West Ham in the Premier League appeared to increase yesterday as Beckham promised to make a decision soon .
The 35-year-old former England captain, who was born in East London, is currently contracted with MLS club LA Galaxy but is due to return to Europe in January when the US season ends.
It would be a emotional return for Beckham to his roots and would drive fantastic replica shirt sales for the Hammers !.
West Ham Chairman David Gold is keen to see the veteran wind up his career at the Premier League club.
"We had some discussions with David's agents a few months ago and it was a possibility," Gold said in The Sun.
West Ham narrowly avoided relegation last season eventually finishing one place above relegation with 35 points . Ladbrokes make the Hammers 5/1 to be relegated in the coming season with or without Beckham whilst Hammers fans can back their team at 1/7 to stay up with Bet365 or the very optimistic could take the 4/1 with Bet365 that new manager Avram Grant will take West Ham to the top half of the Premiership by the end of the season .
