Brentford are delighted to announce the signing of Romeo Beckham from Inter Miami CF on loan until the end of the 2022/23 season.
The 20-year-old will join Neil MacFarlane’s B team for the rest of the campaign to continue his development as he makes the temporary switch from the MLS club. The move is subject to international clearance.
Beckham joined Fort Lauderdale CF in 2021 before the side was renamed Inter Miami II last year. The team acts as a reserve side for the first team at Inter Miami and Beckham has been able to build experience with the reserve group who play in MLS Next Pro.
Last season Inter Miami II finished sixth in the Eastern Conference with the midfield player featuring 20 times.
Beckham led the assists chart last term for the league as he turned provider 10 times, while he also helped himself to two goals over the course of the campaign.
Prior to heading to the USA to link up with the club, Beckham had spent time with Arsenal’s academy up until 2014 before he returned to the game in September 2021.
Since the end of the 2022 MLS Next Pro season, Beckham has been in training with the young Bees on a regular basis at Jersey Road.
“We’ve been absolutely delighted with Romeo since he arrived with us," said Brentford B head coach Neil MacFarlane.
"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.
"I think it’s testament to us as a club, and as a B team, that Inter Miami have asked us to work with him and trust in us to continue working with him to help him with his development.”
