Evening Ticker: Beckham's gone till November, Cameron's season over and more

David Beckham's return to MLS will have to wait a bit longer than expected.

Beckham told Good Morning America on Monday that he is targeting a November return, which would mean he will miss the entire 2010 MLS regular season, though he still has an outside chance of playing for the Galaxy in the playoffs.

Beckham suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during a loan stint with AC Milan, an injury that ended his quest to play in a fourth World Cup with England. It now also appears that the injury will cost him the 2010 MLS season.

Here are some other stories to wrap up your Monday:

CAMERON OUT FOR SEASON

Houston Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron is out for the season after suffering a torn PCL during the Dynamo's 2-0 loss to the Chicago Fire last Saturday.

Cameron joins Brian Ching on the Dynamo's injured list. Houston is already coping with the off-season losses of U.S. national team midfielders Ricardo Clark and Stuart Holden, and will now be in serious trouble without Cameron, who had made the move from central defense into midfield this season.

WENGER, ARSENAL READY TO SPEND

For as long as anybody cares to remember, Arsenal has been the most frugal of England's power clubs, staying away from over-spending while Arsene Wenger developed top young talent.

Apparently, Wenger has grown tired of being trophyless.

The Arsenal manager revealed that the Gunners will be spending money this summer, news that will come as sweet music for Arsenal fans.

"Our financial situation has greatly improved," Wenger said. "We are finally able to buy the players we think we need."

If true, Arsenal are very likely to be searching for a goalkeeper as well as defenders, while striker Marouane Chamakh is expected to join on a free transfer from Bordeaux.
