Undeterred after a trial at Chelsea came to nothing earlier this year, David Beckham's oldest son Brooklyn has been training with another London club, QPR. A flurry of initial reports claimed that 14-year-old Brooklyn had signed with QPR, but the club clarified that he is not (yet) a member of their academy via Twitter.
Contrary to reports, Brooklyn Beckham has been training at #QPR but has not joined our academy.

Brooklyn's father, who signed with Manchester United at the age of 14 (fantastic picture here), played his final match last weekend. So in a way, it would be fitting that the first of David Beckham's sons begins his career days after he ended his and at the same age as he started.
According to Reuters, bookmakers have the odds of Brooklyn playing for England like his father did (a record 115 times) at 12-1 and the odds of him one day playing in the Premier League at 9-2. He definitely won't be doing that with relegated QPR next season, though.
