New Year rumors

I will mark a dozen years of employment at the Daily Breeze Monday by taking the day off so there will be no column Tuesday.

*I’ll leave you with the usual blather out of England that include reports Newcastle United want David Beckham on loan. So do Spurs. Really.

The Galaxy really do not want Beckham to go anywhere on loan before the fifth and final year of his contract. Really.

*Maykel Galindo, out of contract with MLS and banished from Chivas USA to USL Miami FC by season’e end last year, will report for pre-season training with the club, but doesn’t know where he will end up, he told me via Facebook.

*Reports out of Latin America suggest Juan Carlos Osorio is not coming to Chivas USA after all.

*One thing we do know for sure: UCLA product Frankie Hejduk, 36, signed a one-year contract with the Galaxy after the club selected him in the Re-Entry Draft.

“As a Southern California native, to get an opportunity to play in front of my family and friends is a cool thing that not too many people get to do,” added Hejduk. “In addition, the transition into the locker room is going to be an easy one for me as I already have a bond with many of the players here through the National Team program. It’s not very often you get to play with other World Cup veterans on your team and I’m really looking forward to playing with them as well as some of the young and up and coming MLS stars on the Galaxy roster.”
