Birmingham City fans will be gutted to see their side now fighting at the wrong end of the table after working their way into a position to challenge for the play-offs. Of course, the Blues’ main aim will be to avoid relegation at this moment in time, with the opportunity to make amends next season.
Garry Monk will need to bring in a number of players in the summer if he is to make a fist of things next season as Che Adams could depart and Michael Morrison’s future remains uncertain.
However, Monk may have found a young talent who could save the club millions in the future, Jude Bellingham.
Jude Bellingham travelled with Garry Monk’s senior squad for the derby defeat at West Bromwich Albion recently and he filled the role of 19th man, as well as warming up with the first team at The Hawthorns.
The youngster is very highly-rated at St Andrew’s and he could soon get an opportunity in the first team having witnessed Wes Harding’s rise in the Championship.
Birmingham City have managed to produce a number of talents over the years, including the likes of Demarai Gray and Nathan Redmond, so perhaps Jude Bellingham will be the next.
He must be a special talent if he’s already spending time with the first-team squad at the age of 15 but they won’t want to rush him into action as he’s better off developing in the youth ranks.
Although, if he does receive the correct guidance and reaches his full potential then he may just save the club millions in the future, as he has the ability to follow in Gray’s footsteps.
Birmingham City fans, do you think Bellingham could be your next youth star? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
