Jude Bellingham debunks rumours of a move away from Dortmund

Jude Bellingham has said that he is very happy and grateful to be at Borussia Dortmund, amid rumours linking him with a move to the English Premier League.

Jude Bellingham has enjoyed a stunning rise since joining Borussia Dortmund from Birmingham City in 2020. His performances have caught the eye of a number of big clubs, with Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United, and a number of other teams reportedly tracking his progress.

It has been reported in recent months that Bellingham could potentially leave the Black and Yellows next summer. But the England international is not thinking about a move away from Borussia Dortmund, and he made it clear on Tuesday that he is very happy at the club.

During the press conference ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s UEFA Champions League clash against Manchester City, the midfielder said that he is very grateful to the club for giving him an opportunity and added that it would be disrespectful to discuss the transfer rumours.

“I’m here to win for Borussia Dortmund. And I’m very happy here, focused on all the goals that we have as a team. I’m really not looking past that. The club has done loads for me and made me feel very welcome since I first came and given me the opportunities to develop even further. To look past that and into the future would be disrespectful. It’s not something I am thinking about, to be honest.”

Bellingham has also enjoyed growing responsibility at Borussia Dortmund and has established himself as one of the most important players in the team. He was appointed the club’s third captain by head coach Edin Terzic ahead of the start of the season as a reward for his incredible development.

And the 19 year old said that it means the world to him to have the kind of responsibility in the team.

“It means the world to me to be honest. To be given that responsibility at my age, it’s a real honour and I’m really grateful to the coach and the club. Wearing the armband in a Champions League game is something that will always feel special to me. I want to lead by example and I want to help the team win at all times, whether that’s on the pitch or as a leader.”

Jude Bellingham captained Borussia Dortmund in a competitive game for the first time last week in the UEFA Champions League clash against FC Copenhagen.
