Allardyce won’t rule out Becks bid.
WEST HAM boss Sam Allardyce has become the latest Premier League manager to admit he could be interested in bringing David Beckham back to England.
The 37-year-old is set to leave LA Galaxy next week, with him yet to decide on his future plans.
Both QPR and French side PSG are favourites to land Beckham, with a move to Australia also mooted for the former Manchester United star.
But Allardyce revealed that the Hammers could also be in with a shout of capturing the ex-England skipper.
“I haven’t heard from him. I don’t know what David is thinking or doing at the moment,” he said.
“We will wait to see what he’s doing and then we will see what happens.”

David Beckham has yet another suitor.
Becks’ announcement that he is set to leave LA Galaxy in the new year has sparked a frenzy of activity across the globe, with clubs as far-flung as China, Brazil and Australia all clamouring to sign the former England captain.
Closer to home, new QPR boss Harry Redknapp has admitted that he’d love to bring the 37-year-old to Loftus Road and ‘Arry has been joined in the hunt by West Ham boss Sam Allardyce.
Although Becks has professed to being a boyhood Man United fan, there is no doubt that the Hammers would have been the Leytonstone-born star’s boyhood club and if the veteran fancies one last crack at the Premier League plus a return to his roots, a sensational move to Upton Park could be on the cards.
But there is a sense that Beckham is somehow finished with the Premier League and a return to comfortably midtable West Ham wouldn’t exactly be the fresh challenge he is professing to seek.
It is far more likely that the ex-United midfielder will seek a new country altogether, perhaps following Alessandro Del Piero Down Under or even joining Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the quest to make PSG the world’s biggest superpower.
Don’t hold your breath West Ham fans.
