Accordign to Dortmund Sporting director, Michael Zorc said: “Jude Bellingham has decided with absolute confidence to pursue his career at Borussia Dortmund. The primary motivation behind his decision were the prospects on the pitch we were able to offer him.
“He has enormous potential, which we will continue to develop together with him over the coming years.
“He already boasts astonishing quality with and without the ball, and has a strong mentality to boot.
“Jude will immediately strengthen our first team squad, but we will certainly give him all the time he needs to adapt to the higher level of play.”
