Brentford make call on Romeo Beckham's future at the club, he's got a big decision to make

Brentford make call on Romeo Beckham's future at the club, he's got a big decision to make

Romeo Beckham signed for Brentford B in January on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Romeo Beckham has a big decision to make after Brentford made a call on his future at the Premier League club, according to reports.

The 20-year-old forward, son of former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham, joined the Bees in January on a six-month loan deal from Major League Soccer side Inter Miami.

Since penning the short-term contract, Beckham has impressed onlookers during a handful of appearances for Brentford B.

He scored his first goal for the club in their Middlesex Senior Cup win over Wealdstone – an injury-time winner that clinched an entertaining 3-2 win at Grosvenor Vale.

And the youngster has continued to show his talent. In fact, Brentford have offered handed Beckham the opportunity to extend his stay into next season after an impressive stint in West London.

That's according to The Telegraph, who say he has the option to stay with the Premier League club for another campaign or return to America.

Earlier this year, Brentford B head coach MacFarlane praised Beckham for his application, both in and around the club's training facility in Hounslow.

“We’ve been absolutely delighted with Romeo since he arrived with us," he told the club's website.

"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."

MacFarlane added: "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.”

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has also been impressed by Beckham's ability. "Romeo is a very good player, of course he has a name that is pretty worldwide, and big," he said.

"For Romeo, he is himself, but he of course has a big name. You can't compare (father and son). He is here for a reason, because we think he is a good player, and we are pleased he could make the loan deal."

Brentford's director of football Phil Giles, meanwhile, has played down suggestions that bringing Beckham to the club was a PR stunt.

Speaking on the The High Performance Podcast, he said: “We brought Romeo in on a loan from Inter Miami for our B team and it was one of the most read stories that day on the website. It wasn't a PR stunt in any way.

"The thought that went into Romeo is that we have relationships in football, he was looking for places to train in England as he's an Inter Miami player.

"We said of course but still didn't look past the process of, is he going to add to that environment as a player? Had he come in and been like, 'I'm a Beckham,' that would have been a disaster for us. The character has to be correct.”
