David Beckham will always regard Los Angeles as ''home''.

The English soccer star recently announced he is going to leave his club LA Galaxy when the season finishes next month and while he is looking to play his sport in another country, he says he and his family will eventually return to California.

David - who has four children, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 16-month-old Harper, with wife Victoria - said: ''Whether we spend more time in England more time in England or here, LA is always going to be regarded as our home.

''I have loved playing here and living here. Like I said, I will always be part of LA and it will be very special.''

David - who has previously played for English club Manchester United, Spanish team Real Madrid and Italian club A.C. MIlan - has been linked to a number of clubs including ones on China, Australia, Russia, South Africa and his native England.

However, he has yet to make a decision as he wants to concentrate on his final game for LA Galaxy.

Although he now regards Los Angeles as home, David and his family will spend Christmas in England with their parents and siblings.
