David Beckham finally reported to the Los Angeles Galaxy's training camp to begin what is expected to be his final season in Major League Soccer.

Beckham, whose contract expires in November, spent the past six weeks training with English side Tottenham.

Due to injuries and commitments overseas, Beckham played just seven games with the southern California team last season.

Beckham and coach Bruce Arena have downplayed reports that Beckham was trying to work out a loan agreement with Tottenham.

Beckham says he went to Tottenham to get a head-start on training for the MLS season and to compete with players at Premier League level.

The MLS season starts in less than three weeks.
