Romeo Beckham, 19, Has Signed His First Professional Football Contract

Romeo Beckham has penned his first professional contract with USL League One side Fort Lauderdale - and the teenager could make his debut this weekend.

The 19-year-old has been training with Inter Miami's reserve team Fort Lauderdale in recent weeks alongside Phil Neville's son Harvey, who has featured in 14 league games so far this season.

And after signing a deal with the third-tier club, he posted a picture of himself wearing his new kit alongside the caption: "Follow your dreams".

He has also updated his Instagram bio, writing: "Footballer for @fortlauderdalecf."

Romeo's mum, Victoria, commented on the post, saying: "We are so proud of you Romeo".

According to the Miami Herard via Miami Total Futbol, Beckham could make his debut against Chattanooga Red Wolves SC on Sunday afternoon as his new side currently sit fourth in the USL League One table.

Fort Lauderdale have picked up seven wins in 20 games so far this campaign.

Romeo has clearly picked up a lesson or two from his dad. Earlier this year, he replicated that iconic goal against Greece at Old Trafford that helped England qualify for the 2002 World Cup.

He showcased his football talent on Instagram when he curled one into the top corner using a technique similar to David's.

Romeo composes himself, places his left foot forward [like his dad always did] and delivers the goods with a cracking strike. Remind you of anyone?

As mentioned earlier, Romeo will join former Manchester United academy prospect Harvey Neville in the Fort Lauderdale setup.

Phil Neville, who is the first-team manager at MLS side Inter Miami, spoke of his son's decision back in May.

"It was his decision to leave Manchester United and every move he's made has been like that," he said.

"He has taken some brave moves in his career, he came out to do some training and to see his dad and really enjoyed it."

Neville continued, saying: "He impressed everybody but it is quite difficult (for me) because when he's at the club he is just another player.

"So I have left a lot of the decision making on Harvey to other people at the club, Anthony Pulis (Inter Miami assistant coach) has taken a real interest in him.

"I am harder on Harvey than on any other player in the team but ultimately he has signed for the USL team and it's a great opportunity for him.

"He's so excited to be here and it is a new adventure for him."
