BANGKOK, THAILAND- JUNE 25:  A three-month-old bulldog, dressed as a red devil is held by a fan of former Manchester United player David Beckham, who waits patiently for him to leave the stadium on June 25, 2003 in Bangkok, Thailand. Beckham is in Bangkok on a brief stopover on a Castrol Oil promotional tour. He is featured in Castrol Oil ads in Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.

David Beckham is happy at LA Galaxy and has had no contact with West Ham, a spokesman for the former England captain has announced.

Beckham has been linked with a move to Upton Park, with Hammers co-owner David Gold revealing he wants to sign the 35-year-old midfielder and that talks have taken place with the player’s agent.

But a spokesman for Beckham has denied the rumours, insisting the veteran will remain in the States.

“Whilst it’s flattering to hear of interest there has been no contact with or offer from West Ham,” said the spokesman.

“David is happy at the Los Angeles Galaxy and has no interest in leaving, and is looking forward to returning to the team on August 9.”

The latest in a very long line of targets that David Gold and David Sullivan have suggested they were looking into signing, and this one appears to have as much validity as some of the others. The likes of Thierry Henry, Raul, Guti and Garrincha (we made that one up) have all been reported possible signings, clearly, none of them signed.

Expect Manchester City to make a bid.
