Victoria Beckham is reportedly keen to move back to the UK so she can spend more time with her family.

The fashion designer currently resides in Los Angeles with soccer star husband David and their four children - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 15-month-old Harper - but the couple are said to be considering moving back home as they want to be closer to their parents and siblings.

A source said: ''Victoria feels that her kids are missing out by not having her and David's extended families around them, especially as they get older, and would love for them to be able to spend more time together.''

The couple are already said to have been looking at schools for the children as well as searching for homes that are close to London but have lots of privacy.

The source added to Britain's Hello! magazine: ''Proximity to great schools is the number one priority. They have already made provisional enquiries at the top London academies, such as Haberdashers' Aske's. They still own Beckingham Palace in Hertfordshire, but may well opt for something a bit closer to London, given that Victoria will have to commute most days.

''Privacy is their other big concern. They are pretty much left alone in LA, and wouldn't want their family to move back if they were going to be harassed 24/7, so the property search will focus on secluded homes with excellent security.''
