David Beckham has ruled out a move to Everton.
But the former England captain admitted he had huge respect for Blues boss David Moyes, dating back to their playing days in the same Preston side in 1995.
Speculation had linked LA Galaxy midfielder Beckham, 35, with a loan move to a Premier League team in January. And Moyes revealed last week that he would be interested in working with the ex-Manchester United player again.
But asked on Tuesday if a move to Everton was on the cards, Beckham replied: "No - I'm a Manchester United fan and Everton is too close to home.
"It is always flattering to be linked with big clubs even if that would only be for a few months on loan.
"I have massive respect for David Moyes - I have had ever since we played together at Preston."
