Borussia Dortmund Signs Highly Rated English Teen Jude Bellingham

Borussia Dortmund has signed promising 17-year-early English midfielder Jude Bellingham from second-division club Birmingham, the German club said Monday. Dortmund at long last affirmed the normal arrangement two days before Birmingham's last association round of the period – a potential transfer decider against Derby.

Dortmund said Bellingham signed a "drawn out arrangement" and will wear the No. 22 shirt. 

"I'm incredibly eager to have gone along with perhaps the greatest club," Bellingham told Birmingham's site. "The course they are going in and the amount they help to improve young players settled on it a simple choice for myself and my family." 

Bellingham follows in the strides of England forward Jadon Sancho, who was 17 when he made the move from Manchester City to Dortmund three years back. Sancho has since gotten one of the Bundesliga's most valuable attacking players with 17 goals and 17 assists this season. 

Bellingham made his presentation for Birmingham last August, aged 16 and 138 days. That made him the most young player in the club's history. He proceeded to score four goals in 40 league appearances.

Bellingham has likewise played for England at the under-17 level.
