Brentford have signed Romeo Beckham on loan from Inter Miami.

The son of former England captain and Manchester United legend David Beckham, the 20-year-old started his footballing career on the books at Arsenal’s academy.

Released at the age of 13, Beckham took a five-year break from football before joining his father’s American side and made his professional debut in September 2021.

Last season, Inter Miami II finished sixth in the Eastern Conference and Beckham led the way in the assists charts, registering ten in 20 appearances while also scoring twice.

The midfielder had been training with Brentford in an effort to build up his fitness during the close season in the USA and will now spend the rest of the campaign in west London, though is expected only to feature for the club’s B-team.

Beckham told Brentford’s official website: “I’m very proud and very happy to be here.

“I came here at the start to keep fit during the off season. The chance then came to come on loan here and I’ve never been so excited.

"I’ve loved it. They’re such nice boys and have good energy. I love coming in every day seeing them and getting to train every day with them is fun.

“They are all very talented players, and they drive me to be even better in myself. A few of them give me some kicks and I give them back, but we all come into work hard to get better in ourselves and the coaches drive that.”
