Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has said he will ask David Beckham about joining the Foxes on loan again - although he admits it is a long shot.The 35-year-old LA Galaxy midfielder wants a winter loan move during his club side's close season in an attempt to win back his England place. [LNB]But Eriksson told BBC Radio Leicester: "I would try again and that would be the third time. [LNB]"But no, he will not come - I am pretty sure - so we can forget that story." [LNB]Beckham, who on Sunday received the BBC Sports Personality Lifetime Achievement award, has spent the past two pre-seasons with AC Milan but has ruled out another spell with the Italian giants. [LNB]"I won't be going back to AC Milan this time because is not possible to go onto the roster for such a short length of time," Beckham said. [LNB]"But I will be going back somewhere as I want to keep myself fit and keep myself in with a chance of getting called up for England again. To do that, I have to be somewhere so fingers crossed I can sort something out." [LNB]He has also dismissed a return to England's top flight.[LNB]Beckham was England skipper under Eriksson"It is a great league and one of the most competitive in the world," Beckham added. [LNB]"Maybe one day I will come back here but I have always said that it will only be for Manchester United. I am not holding my breath on that one, but we will have to wait and see." [LNB]Eriksson, who managed Beckham at two World Cups for the national team, has already twice tried to lure the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder back to England with Championship side Leicester. [LNB]And although unlikely, Beckham - who has not played for England since suffering a torn Achilles tendon in March - still harbours dreams of adding to his 115 international caps. [LNB]"My body feels great after my injury," Beckham said. "I always said I needed to get that back into order and keep my fitness and we will see."
