Jude Bellingham's 16-year-old younger brother Job remains at hometown club Birmingham City, where he has scored three goals in five appearances for the club's U19 squad. The younger Bellingham brother is a right footer who generally plays on the flanks. 


Jobe Bellingham has yet to make a senior appearance for the Blues. He's been part of the club's bench squad in two EFL Cup fixtures, but did not log any minutes on the pitch. Currently aged 16 months, one month, and three days it does not look as if he will break his older brother's record as the youngest player ever to appear for the club.

Germany's SportBild nevertheless reports that Borussia Dortmund wish to tie the younger brother down. According to a report appearing in the tabloid's pages, the BVB are very convinced of his qualities and wish to bring him to Germany. The article suggests acquiring Job is considered an essential part of efforts to keep Jude with the club long-term.

The younger Bellingham brother does not yet have an estimated market value and Sport Bild notes that other Premiership clubs are interested as well.
