David Beckham's American Dream

Picture:

David Beckham wants to become a US citizen.

The former England soccer captain - who moved to Beverly Hills in 2007 with wife Victoria and their three sons, Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five - has no plans to move back to the UK.

Instead, he hopes to remain in America for as long as his family are happy living there, but insists he will never forget his English roots.

Asked by the Los Angeles Times newspaper if he would like to get US citizenship, David - who was born and raised in London - said: "I hope so, one day. It would be nice. I'm English born and bred and that's the way I'll always be. I'm an Englishman, you know.

"Our boys go to school here. As long as they continue to be happy here and my wife's happy here, then we plan on staying."

Despite his love for America, the heartthrob sportsman wants to bring a little bit of England over to Los Angeles by opening a pub called The Queen Vic.

David - who moved to the US after signing a deal to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team - and his close friend, TV chef Gordon Ramsay, are planning to open a traditional English drinking establishment for the city's expats.

A source previously said: "David wants pie and mash, fish and chips and even chicken in a basket on the menu, just like the meals he eats when he's in the UK."
