David Beckham is expected to launch his long-awaited Major League Soccer franchise in Miami on Monday.

The former England captain is to host a press conference alongside MLS commissioner Don Garber, it has been announced.

A press release from promoters said 'an important announcement on the future of soccer in Miami will be made' at the conference, which will take place at the city's high-profile Adrienne Arsht Center.

Miami has long been identified as a potential MLS expansion area but the Beckham-backed venture to take a team there has been beset by years of difficulties over the location of a possible new stadium.

The announcement suggests a solution has been found and Miami will be welcomed as MLS' 25th club.

Beckham, who won 115 England caps, had an option to purchase an MLS expansion franchise included in his contract when he joined Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007.

The 42-year-old, who began his career at Manchester United and also played for Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris St Germain, spent almost six years with Galaxy.
