English teenager Jude Bellingham has completed a move to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund - for a fee that could rise to over £30m.

The 17-year-old midfielder won plenty of plaudits for Birmingham City in the Championship this season and has signed a long-term deal with Dortmund.

Following the announcement of his departure, Bellingham spoke of his excitement at the transfer. 

"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."

At the start of the season, Bellingham broke former England striker Trevor Francis' record, as Birmingham's youngest-ever player, when he made his first-team debut aged 16 years 38 days.
