WEMBLEY, England (AP) - Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham says a deal for another loan to AC Milan is 95 percent done.

Beckham was loaned to AC Milan from last January through the end of the Serie A season, then returned to the Major League Soccer team. He wants to play in Europe again to ensure he'll stay sharp and earn a place on England's World Cup roster for the fourth time.

The 34-year-old entered England's World Cup qualifier against Belarus in the 58th minute Wednesday night and sent a short corner kick to Shaun Wright Phillips, who scored the second goal in England's 3-0 victory.
