Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham says it was an easy decision to move to the club.
The former Birmingham youngster chose BVB ahead of Manchester United and other Premier League teams.
He committed to the German giants, who have a history of allowing young players the game time and environment to succeed.
"The hardest thing about leaving Birmingham was because I had been there so long," he told Sky Sports.
"It felt like they were a massive part of me, being a fan and then working [my way up] all the way through the academy and playing for the first team."
"I think in life you have to take opportunities, and this is a huge one for me to come and play for such a big club. It wasn't a hard one [decision] for me to come here."
