David Beckham's representatives have quashed suggestions the LA Galaxy midfielder is considering a move to Australia.

The Football Federation of Australia announced this morning they had held preliminary discussions with the former England captain's management team with a view to him playing in the A-League.

But representatives for Beckham have swiftly contradicted the FFA, saying he is "focused" on his commitments with the Galaxy.

"There is always an enormous interest from clubs across world in signing David but there are absolutely no plans to play in Australia," a spokesperson for Beckham said.

"David is completely focused on the MLS play-offs and winning another Championship with the Galaxy."

Beckham moved to America in 2007 after after four years with Spanish giants Real Madrid, where he won his only Primera Liga title in his final match with the club.

The FFA had earlier hailed 37-year-old Beckham's "superstar" status and claimed he would be another "massive signing for the A-League".

Juventus icon Alessandro del Piero and former England striker Emile Heskey moved to the A-League in recent months and ply their trade at Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets.
