Following the news that both David Beckham and PSG have pulled the plug on his supposed move to Paris, William Hill are now offering 4/11 that his next competitive game is for the LA Galaxy and 4/1 that he signs for any other MLS side. Should he move to England, QPR are the favourites to sign him at 12/1 with Arsenal 16/1. A return to Spain looks the most unlikely outcome with Malaga the favourites of the Spanish sides to sign him up at 25/1.
Hills offer 1/3 that David Beckham starts the first match for Team GB at the Olympics.
In a full U turn, it looks like Becks will now be staying in America and more than likely, turning out for the Galaxy once again, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Andy Carroll has hardly set the world alight since his arrival at Liverpool from Newcastle and rumours are suggesting that he could well be returning to the North East. Hills make him 10/3 to return to Newcastle, whether permanently or on loan and Hills think that Darren Bent could well be on his way to Anfield, offering 9/2 that he signs for Liverpool in January.
David Beckhams Next Competitive Game: 4/11 LA Galaxy; 4/1 Any other MLS team; 12/1 QPR; 16/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Fulham; 25/1 Anzhi; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Malaga; 25/1 Man Utd…others on request
10/3 Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle in January 2012 (1/5 not to)
9/2 Darren Bent to sign for Liverpool in January 2012 (1/8 not to)
Manchester United are firm favourites to defeat Newcastle, despite losing to Blackburn and William Hill make them 8/11 to win in the North East. Newcastle are 4/1 and the game should signal the return of Wayne Rooney to the starting line up. William Hill offer 6/4 that his first action during the game is to score a goal while he is 4/1 to be booked and 40/1 to see a straight red first. Rooney is 15/8 to outscore Demba Ba during the game and 5/2 to outscore Javier Hernandez. The last time these two sides played, Manchester United conceded a highly controversial penalty and they are 11/2 to concede another.
All eyes will be on Rooney as he returns to the pitch following his suspension and we think he could well find the back of the net, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Landon Donovan could return for Everton against Bolton and Hills make him 9/2 to open the scoring and 6/5 to score anytime. It is Even money for him to be subbed before doing anything else in the match, although he is 2/1 to score a goal before that.
What will Rooney do first vs Newcastle: 6/4 Score; 2/1 finish match; 11/4 subbed; 4/1 yellow card; 40/1 red card; 66/1 own goal
Rooney vs Ba (most goals): 15/8 Rooney; 10/3 Ba; 5/6 Tie
Rooney vs Hernandez (most goals): 5/2 Rooney; 11/4 Hernandez; 8/11 Tie
Manchester United to concede a penalty: 11/2
What will Landon Donovan do first vs Bolton: 1/1 Subbed; 2/1 Goal; 10/3 Finish match; 4/1 Yellow Card; 40/1 Red Card; 50/1 Own Goal
