Brentford have confirmed that Romeo Beckham has joined their B team on loan for the remainder of the season.

Beckham junior, the son of former England and Manchester United icon David Beckham, plies his trade for Inter Miami but has been training with the Bees since November.

The 20-year-old winger has clocked up 20 appearances for Inter Miami's reserve side since signing professional terms the club, which is co-owned by his father, but will now spend the next few months with Brentford's second-string after agreeing terms on a temporary deal.

“I’m very proud and very happy to be here,” Beckham said after the move was confirmed on Friday afternoon. “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.

“They [coaching staff] have 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.”

Reacting to the deal, Brentford B head coach Neil MacFarlane expressed his delight by adding: “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.

"He is very technical, and he is somebody who can shift the ball quickly and cross. He is also a really good finisher and he has the ability to play a number of positions for us, which is also pleasing.”

Along with his older brother Brooklyn, Beckham spent time with Arsenal's academy as a youngster before he decided to leave the Gunners at the age of 12. He returned to football back in 2021 and signed for Inter Miami, who is managed by former Manchester United and Everton full-back Phil Neville.

Although Beckham junior has yet to feature in the MLS for Inter Miami's first-team, he did feature briefly for the senior side during a friendly against Barcelona back in July.
