The former England captain, who has been linked with a move to the UAE Pro League, was spotted at Chelsea's training ground where his 13-year-old son was having a try-out.

David Beckham's eldest son has made the first move to follow in his father's footsteps - after having a trial with Chelsea.

13-year-old Brooklyn Beckham trained at Chelsea's Cobham training ground yesterday.

Speculation about the former England captain's presence at the ground was solved as it emerged his son was playing with the team.

The former England captain Beckham is currently without a club after leaving Los Angeles Galaxy last month, and has been linked with a move to the UAE Pro League.

His attendance for the under-14 fixture at the home of the 2011-2012 Champions League winners will undoubtedly lead to speculation Brooklyn Beckham is in line to follow in his father's footsteps to play football at the highest level.

Yet David Beckham and his wife Victoria, the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer, would be reluctant to heap pressure on any of their four children.
