Birmingham City teenager Jude Bellingham, who was the target of Manchester United for the last couple of months was recently signed by Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund. Birmingham's youngest player was pursued by Dortmund and has left the Championship club after playing the final match of the season.

Dortmund confirmed the youngster's signing by sharing a video of players and staff from around the club singing along to 'Hey Jude' by The Beatles via their official Twitter page to welcome their new arrival.

As per the reports, the two clubs agreed to a-5-year contract worth €25 million (£23m/$29m). The deal would reportedly make him the most expensive teenager in European football.

"I'm incredibly excited to have joined one of Europe's biggest clubs," said the England Under-17 international. The direction they are heading in and how much they help to improve young players made it an easy decision for myself and my family. I can't thank Birmingham City enough for what they have done for me, not just this past year but since the age of seven. Once a blue always a blue."

Premier League club Red Devils were also on the line to sign the young player. They even arrange a meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson when Bellingham visited their training ground.
