Borussia Dortmund have agreed personal terms with Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham, according to a report from Sport Bild.


The 16-year-old is expected to cost around €35 million, which would be a club-record transfer fee for BVB.

According to the report, Bellingham has attracted interest from Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea as well, but Dortmund appear to have won the race for his signature.

Bellingham – a flexible midfielder, who prefers to play in a central position – is under contract with Birmingham until 2021.

He has made 34 appearances for the English Championship side this season with four goals and three assists to his name.
