Brimingham City starlet and Man Utd target Jude Bellingham has an agreement in place to join Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in Germany.

The 16-year-old has become one of European football’s most sought-after young talents after a stunning breakthrough season in the Championship.

Bellingham has chipped in with four goals and three assists this term and his performances have led to serious interest from the likes of Man Utd and Dortmund.

Reports previously indicated that the youngster has been shown around United’s Carrington training complex by Sir Alex Ferguson with the Red Devils prepared to offer him a first-team role next season.

However, German publication SportBild (via Sport Witness) claims that ‘with Bellingham everything is clear’ and that Dortmund have an agreement in place to sign the youngster.

SportBild add that Bellingham will bring much-needed reinforcements to the centre of midfield for Dortmund but they fail to mention a transfer free or the size of any deal for the Birmingham youngster.
