David Beckham moves to PSG and..and Roy Hodgson doesn't rule out an England recall!

Football News 24/7
We all know transfer deadline day is a crazy 24 hours or so, but there is no bigger story than the news that David Beckham has joined French side Paris St Germain.

The former England star hasn't played on these shores in almost a decade since he left manchester United, but he still remains one of the biggest stories in football.

If the move itself wasn't enough to grab the headlines, it was then revealed that he will be donating his wages to charoty.

Even more bizarre was the news that England's National team manager, Roy Hodgson has hinted Beckham could return to the England squad after the news about his move to PSG was announced.

Beckham, who has been without a club since leaving MLS side LA Galaxy in December, has penned a five-month contract with Qatari-owned PSG, and England manager Hodgson is refusing to rule out calling up the 37-year-old in the future.
 
‘Who knows,’ said Hodgson when quizzed on a potential recall for Beckham.
 
‘PSG is a fantastic move for him, and who knows what could happen in future.’

The comments come after Beckham was announced as a PSG player at a press conference in Paris, with the midfielder admitting he is in it for the long haul with the Ligue 1 outfit, despite only signing a five-month contract.
 
Meanwhile Beckham himself said:‘I don’t see it as a short-term project. I consider myself to be part of this club in the future, in helping PSG to grow.’
 
‘I’m 150 per cent committed.’
 
Beckham, who has been training with Arsenal in a bid to ramp up his fitness, is believed to have had offers from the likes of QPR and West Ham, but a return to the Premier League was never on the cards.
 
‘I didn’t want to play for any team in Premier League apart from Manchester United,’ he added.
 
PSG have the option to extend Beckham’s contract by a further year at the end of the season, with both parties expected to review the situation then.

In terms of a likley national call-up, betting expert Joe Ross from www.­footyinsider.­co.­uk said:

'I haven't seen a market for this yet, but if I were setting the odds, Beckham has to be a 33/1 shot at least to gain another cap after even missing out on the Olympic squad for Team GB. With so much talent in midfield, Beckham wouldn't be in the top 20 players on current form or fitness.'
