Jude Bellingham established himself as a first-team regular over the course of the ongoing Championship season with Birmingham City. The 16-year old winger has scored four goals for Birmingham this season which has attracted interest from clubs all across Europe. Jude Bellingham was linked to Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and other top European clubs in the January transfer window. However, it seems like Borussia Dortmund have won the race for his signature by paying €35 million to sign the youngster this summer.
