LA Galaxy, former England captain David Beckham's struggling new team, have signed well-travelled Honduras striker Carlos Pavon.

The 33-year-old, who has played in Mexico, Guatemala, Spain and Italy as well as his native country, will join the Galaxy subject to receiving a work permit, the MLS club said on their Web site on Thursday.

"I am extremely pleased that the Galaxy had confidence in my abilities, and am also proud to be with such a great institution," said Pavon, who scored five goals in Mexico's Gold Cup campaign this month, including four against Cuba.

"Now I am just anxious to start working and getting on the field," he added after joining the 10th club in his career.

Galaxy are second-bottom of the six-team MLS Western Conference and went nearly two months without a win before Sunday's 3-2 victory over bottom club Real Salt Lake.

Beckham, who won the Spanish title with Real Madrid on Sunday, is expected to join up with the Galaxy in mid-July.
