David Beckham training with Arsenal "purely for fitness"

Former LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has decided to train with English Premier League giants Arsenal as he continues mull over the next stop in his career.

Beckham began training with Arsenal on Tuesday at their training ground London Colney as he looks to keep his fitness up. When asked the inviteable question if Beckham could be an option for the Gunners to sign, the club's manager Arsene Wenger immediately shot down any speculation.

"He [Beckham] has asked to come here and work on his fitness. He has not done anything for a long time," Wenger told the media. "He called me. It is purely for fitness. There is no speculation of signing him or anything."
