Romeo Beckham set to follow Brooklyn out of Arsenal

Arsenal are in the process of allowing Romeo Beckham to leave their Hale End academy, according to a report in the Mail on Sunday.

The 13-year-old has already seen his big brother Brooklyn leave the north London club after he failed to secure a scholarship deal in February of this year.

Similarly, Romeo has not met the required grade to move to the next level and his departure is expected to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Although the process of his exit is at an advanced stage, there are still a number of formalities to be completed before it becomes complete.

There is now some doubt over Romeo's future plans and whether or not he will continue to pursue a career in football.

Indeed, their world famous father, David, revealed last month that one of his sons had informed him of their decision not to follow in his footsteps.

Away from the field

"One of my boys turned around to me the other day and said, 'Daddy, you know, I'm not sure I want to play football all the time...' It broke my heart a little bit," Beckham told ABC News.

He said that his son told him: "Every time that I step onto the field, I know people are saying, 'This is David Beckham's son', and if I'm not as good as you, then it's not good enough."

There is no hint as to which of Beckham's three sons that was, but with the youngest of three sons, Cruz, still developing in the Arsenal youth system, the odds are that those comments came from either Brooklyn or Romeo.

Brooklyn, 16, is yet to find a new club after leaving Arsenal and reportedly declared his intention to move into the film industry, suggesting he has given up on his football career.

Romeo has found success away from the football field in the modelling industry, and recently become the face of high-profile Burberry campaign.
