Brentford have agreed to sign Romeo Beckham from Inter Miami on a one-year deal.
The 20-year-old had been on loan playing for Brentford’s B team, but he’ll now make the move permanent ahead of the new season in English football.
He played for the Bees side as they lifted the Premier League Cup, and has done enough to earn a full-time deal.
Brentford are expected to pay a minimal compensation fee for his services.
The move marks the end of Beckham’s stay with his father’s side, with England legend David running the MLS franchise.

He will leave his father’s US-based side in order to move back to England on a permanent basis
Brentford B Team manager Neil MacFarlane had previously made it clear he’d like to see Beckham continue his development at Brentford
Beckham started his career in Arsenal’s academy, but, when he was released in 2014 aged 12, admitted he didn’t want to peruse a career in football.
He made his comeback in 2021, however, joining Inter Miami in America after his father became involved with the club.
Following the move, former Manchester United midfielder David replaced the tennis court on their land with a football pitch.
He spent some time playing for Inter Miami II before playing for the first team in a pre-season game.
He began training with Brentford in October 2022, joining the club on a six-month loan deal in January this year.
The 20-year-old scored his first goal for the club in a Middlesex Senior Cup tie, before seeing out the campaign in London.
Reports have suggested that Beckham wants to be closer to his girlfriend, Mia Regan

He will now join up with the team when pre-season begins, with the hope of pushing on for involvement in the first team, with manager Neil MacFarlane telling Mail Sport he would happily work with Beckham beyond the end of the season.
Reports have suggested Beckham was ready to stay in London to be closer to his girlfriend, Mia Regan.
‘He has been a pivotal member of what has been a special group this year,’ Brentford B boss MacFarlane told Mail Sport recently.
‘There will be a decision made on Romeo. I have no qualms in putting my name to him – I want to help his development again… I’d have no problem whatsoever if he was to stay here and we continue his development at Brentford.’
