Major League Soccer (MLS) is pushing ahead with plans to add a second team in New York but said David Beckham will not be allowed to buy into the new franchise when he retires from playing.

MLS commissioner Don Garber, speaking to reporters on Monday in his annual "state of the league" call, said the organisation was in talks with New York City and was hoping to add a second team in the United States' biggest market in 2016.
