London: American pop diva Madonna is planning to move back to Britain after spending two years in the US following her divorce with filmmaker Guy Ritchie.

The "Celebration" singer is planning to return to Britain because she feels her heart is there. But she will have to apply to move back as she is no longer married to a British citizen, reports a website.

"Madonna has loved being back in the States since the divorce but England is where she feels her heart is now," said a source.

"She is deliberately focusing on work that will keep her in Britain. She has had meetings with her London legal team to arrange a visa that will enable her to move back for good. Now that she is no longer a British citizen by virtue of being married to Guy, she will have to apply like everyone else," the source added.

Madonna`s eldest son Rocco, 10, is able to stay in Britain because he is Ritchie`s son. But her other children - Lourdes, 13 and adopted kids David Banda, 5, and Mercy James, 4 - would need their mother to complete her visa application before they can live in Britain.

"The other children will automatically gain visas as Madonna`s dependents as long as she can get past the paperwork," the source said.

"The past couple of years have been the breath of fresh air Madonna needed after her divorce. She is now ready to embrace British lifestyle again," the source added.
