The 37-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder is teaming up with the ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ star for the eatery and said he is excited to be venturing into a new business.

He told radio host Ryan Seacrest: “We’ve got something in the pipeline. We are obviously good friends and we are excited about a project that could happen pretty soon.

“It will be a business thing but owning a restaurant is going to be fun as well.”

David and his wife Victoria are close friends with Gordon, 46, and his wife Tana, 37, and the families regularly meet up for vacations and dinner dates.

The sportsman has previously taken cooking lessons and has admitted he has always wanted to work for Gordon.

David said: “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always loved cooking. I’d love to cook for Gordon and I definitely will one day.”

David is to play his final match for Los Angeles Galaxy today and it is believed he and Victoria, 38, are keen to come back to England.

The former Spice Girl has been house-hunting in London and the restaurant plan is thought to be another sign the family are looking to permanently relocate to the UK from the US.

Referring to the end of his American adventure earlier this week, he said: “I do think I’ll be spending more time in England.”
