Romeo Beckham has joined Premier League club Brentford FC's reserve team on loan from Inter Miami II until the end of the season.

Romeo, 20, has trained with the west London club's B-team for a few months to maintain his fitness during the MLS off season.

"I'm very proud and very happy to be here," who made 20 appearances for Inter Miami II last season.

"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."

The move to the Bees is subject to international clearance, but it could help the reserve team challenge for the Premier League Cup and play more matches overseas.

Romeo has played for the second team at Inter Miami (co-owned by his father) since 2021, but did make a brief appearance against La Liga giants Barcelona for the first team in July.
