David and Victoria Beckham have moved forward with their plans to return to the UK by enrolling their sons in a school in London.

The couple are now househunting in London after finding a £15,000-a-year establishment in the UK capital for sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, seven, and will make the move from Los Angeles in the summer.

The Beckhams are also believed to have found a nursery suitable for their 17-month-old daughter Harper.

A source close to the couple told the Daily Mirror: “For David and Victoria, the children come first. They have spent months researching schools and after visiting a few earlier this month, have found one they agree on.

“It’s an independent school and will not be fazed by having celebrity children on its books. Both David and Victoria’s families are all delighted too, as a return to London means they will see so much more of the children.”

The move comes after David, 37, announced his intention to leave his current soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy.

However, despite opting to be based in London with his fashion designer wife, Becks may look further afield for his new club, with French side Paris Saint-Germain among the favourites for his signature.

He is also weighing up options to play in Brazil or China on a lucrative contract.

The source added: “David is coming to the end of his career and needs to consider his move carefully. A transfer to a top European club makes sense and as David has never played in France, a move to Paris would be ideal.”
