David Beckham has found a new home for his soccer talents.

The athlete, who left the L.A. Galaxy last month, signed a five-month deal with France’s Paris Saint-Germain team.

Beckham announced the news on Thursday, revealing that he’ll donate his entire salary to charity.

He said in a press conference in Paris, “I’m excited, it’s something we’ve been working on and talking about for quite a while.”

The father of four added, “I won’t receive any salary. My salary will go to a local children’s charity. That’s one of the things we are excited and proud to do. It’s something exciting and I’m not sure it’s been done before.”

Beckham recently moved his family back to London after he ended his five-and-a-half year stint with the L.A. Galaxy.
