If Borussia Dortmund sell Jude Bellingham in the future, his former club Birmingham City will reportedly be entitled to a part of the transfer fee.

According to Sport1, Birmingham secured a 5% sell-on fee as part of the deal that saw Bellingham move to Germany for €23 million in the summer of 2020.

In comparison, when Dortmund sold Jadon Sancho to Manchester United for €85 million, they had to pay €12.75 million – 15% of the fee – to the winger's former club Manchester City.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all said to be keeping a close eye on Bellingham.

However, because the 18-year-old central midfielder's contract doesn't contain a release clause and is set to run until 2025, Dortmund are under no pressure to sell at the moment.

Bellingham has featured a total of 54 times for Dortmund, racking up six goals and eight assists.
