West Ham chairman David Gold believes the club could make a ‘fantastic statement’ by securing the services of David Beckham.

The 37-year-old will play his last match for the LA Galaxy in the MLS Cup final on December 1, and the English superstar has been the subject of much speculation as PSG and Melbourne Heart reportedly consider a deal for the former Three Lions captain.

But Gold feels that Beckham would favour a return to Premier League football and move back to east London, where he grew up.

“He was an ambassador for the London 2012 bid and it would be a fantastic statement if he came to us,” Gold told reporters.

“He’s an East End boy and it would be a fitting end to his career. We’ve also been mindful of his value as an ambassador to help us secure the Olympic Stadium.”
