Romeo Beckham, the second-oldest child of David and Victoria, has signed to play for Brentford FC’s reserve team on loan from Inter Miami.
The 20-year-old has been with the Bee’s B-team for a few months, in an effort to maintain his fitness while Major League Soccer takes a break in the US.
“I’m very proud and very happy to be here,” he said after announcing the deal.
“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.
“It was a fun season [in the USA] and there were a lot of ups and downs, but I’m excited to come here and see what I can do.
“They’ve (the coaching staff) helped me massively over the last couple of months, and I’m excited to see what else they can help me with to really progress in football.
“If you look at Brentford as a club, it’s very positive, and it’s a club that is on the rise very quickly. I’m very grateful to be here.”
Beckham has been at Inter Miami (which is co-owned by his father and coached by Phil Neville) playing for its reserve team since 2021, but he did briefly make an appearance against Barcelona in July for the club’s first team.
The move to west London is subject to international clearance, but could help the squad challenge for the Premier League Cup and play more games abroad.

Head coach of Brentford B, Neil MacFarlane, said: “We’ve been absolutely delighted with Romeo since he arrived with us.
“He came to us from Inter Miami with the aim of working with us during their close season. Romeo has applied himself unbelievably well, he’s really bought into the culture and the group which he has become a big part of.
“I love his standards and the way he conducts himself on and off the pitch.
“He’s been able to get fitter and fitter during his time with us, and it leaves him in a good place to now step forward having joined us on loan.
