(REUTERS) - The future playing career of former England captain David Beckham is unlikely to include a short-term contract in Australia's A-League, the owner of the Perth Glory has said.

There has been a great speculation about the 37-year-old's future following his decision to end his stint in Major League Soccer with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

He has been linked with clubs in England, France, Italy and Australia since he helped the Galaxy to their second successive MLS Cup with a 3-1 win over the Houston Dynamo last month.

Beckham's management had already ruled out a move to the A-League, but it did not stop Glory owner Tony Sage approaching him on a recent visit to London.
