Everton manager David Moyes has admitted that he would be keen to sign veteran England midfielder David Beckham on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy if he opts for another spell back in Europe.
The 35-year-old has headed to the San Siro for stints with AC Milan in the last two seasons and Moyes is ready to move if Beckham decides to complete a hat-trick.
"I would hope that if David wanted to come he would pick up the phone and call me," Moyes said.

England's Ian Poulter will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Dubai World Championship, while Germany's Martin Kaymer is all but certain to end the season as European number one.
Poulter shot a three under par 69 to ease clear of a high-class field, with Francesco Molinari, Thongchai Jaidee and fellow overnight leader Ross Fisher.
Robert Karlsson and Lee Westwood are three shots off the pace, with the latter set to retain his ranking as world number one.
Kaymer could only manage a 73 and is now six shots adrift of Poulter, but he is also four shots ahead of Graeme McDowell, whose bid to win the Order of Merit is set to end in failure.
