English soccer captain David Beckham is searching for a seaside home in Dorset, south west England, the world's fifth most expensive place to buy property.

The Real Madrid player and his wife VICTORIA have been looking at $5.4 million (GBP3 million) homes along millionaires' row, where his neighbours would include fellow soccer player Jamie Redknapp and his pop star wife LOUISE.

Sandbanks in Dorset is number five on the list of the world's priciest residential areas, after Manhattan, Hong Kong, Tokyo and London's Eaton Square.
