Soccer superstar David Beckham and his wife Victoria have sparked speculation they are returning to their native U.K. by visiting one of London's leading private schools.

The sports ace announced last week (20Nov12) he will be leaving U.S. club Los Angeles Galaxy next month (Dec12) but insisted he hopes his family will remain based in California.

Now rumours are sweeping the Internet that the Beckhams are heading back to London after former Spice Girls singer Victoria was reportedly spotted on a guided tour of the fee-paying Harrodian School in Barnes, London on Tuesday (27Nov12).

She spent an hour checking out the institute's facilities with her three sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and seven year old Cruz, and chatting to dozens of excited schoolchildren.

Speaking after his announcement to leave LA Galaxy last week, Beckham told America's NBC, "Whatever happens, L.A. will be regarded as our home... We will keep our house in L.A. We are not guaranteeing that we are moving back to England."
