His wife Victoria is going to stay in London with their three youngest children - Romeo, 15, Cruz, 12, and six-year-old Harper - during school term time, but they will fly out to see him during the holidays.

Beckham was joined by eldest son Brooklyn, 18, at the announcement.

A video showed Victoria saying: “We can’t wait to be spending much more time in Miami.”

Daughter Harper added: “Hi daddy, I can’t wait to see your first football match!”

Beckham's new club, which is yet to be named, will bring professional football back to Miami for the first time since 2001
