Last month, the comedian issued an ultimatum to the former England captain where he called for Beckham to pull out of his deal – reportedly worth £10 million – with Qatar, where homosexuality is illegal.
The following day, the comedian filmed himself shredding wads of money although it was later revealed that he had in fact donated it to an LGBTQ+ charity.
Speaking to Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel on The News Agents podcast, Lycett said: “I’ve not heard directly from Beckham. We have had some movement with his people.
“Basically, we’ve had some contact with them but legally at the minute, I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say.
“I’m not satisfied with where we’ve got to, let’s put it that way.”
Asked if Beckham’s team had offered any donations, Lycett continued: “They’re not offering anything really. They’re just talking to us a little bit.
“I think they’re just trying to get it to go away really. Which it will eventually, and it won’t affect him long-term.”
Commenting on the England team’s decision not to wear the One Love armband in the World Cup, Lycett said it felt like a “real sucker punch”.
