AC Milan announced on Monday that they are to re-sign David Beckham on a six-month loan from Los Angeles Galaxy in January.

'Splendid experience'
The 34-year-old Beckham, who made the same loan move last season, wants to play in Europe to try to keep his place in the England squad for the FIFA World Cup starting in South Africa on 11 June. "We are very happy to again see David Beckham in the red-and-black shirt after the splendid experience of last season," said Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani. "We are sure this period in Europe will help the player to take part in the next World Cup and then to continue his career at Los Angeles Galaxy, whom we thank for their help."

Win in Madrid
Much has changed at Milan since Beckham returned to the US in May, with coach Carlo Ancelotti heading to Chelsea FC and being replaced by the inexperienced Leonardo. The Rossoneri had an indifferent start to this season but the 3-2 victory at Real Madrid CF a fortnight ago left the club top of UEFA Champions League Group C. Galliani also said Ghana Under-20 striker Dominic Adiyiah would arrive at the San Siro in January.
