LOS ANGELES (AP) - In the strongest terms yet about the prospect of luring professional football back to Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti says an NFL team is "highly likely" to come to the city in the next year.

On Thursday's "Ask the Mayor" segment on radio station KNX, Garcetti said that though the city doesn't want to subsidize a stadium, he thinks the NFL is "finally interested" in Los Angeles again.

The Los Angeles Times reports team owners received an update on the LA situation from league executives at the NFL's annual fall meetings in Manhattan this week.

New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch tells the newspaper there were references to potential new locations, including a couple in the Carson area of south Los Angeles County.
