Birmingham striker Jutkiewicz says Man Utd target Bellingham 'has heart and desire'

Birmingham City striker Lukas Jutkiewicz has no doubts about the future of teammate Jude Bellingham.

Manchester United are interested in signing the teenager in the summer transfer window and Birmingham forward Jutkiewicz has explained why the youngster is such a special talent.

"I think his ability is there for everyone to see," he told Boyle Sports.

"I think the thing that sets him apart from a lot of other youngsters at his age that have got that ability is his heart and desire.

"The thing that I love to see when he is playing is that he is desperate to get a tackle in, desperate to close someone down and do the dirty side of the game as well. Obviously his talent shines through as well with that.

"He is a really down to earth kid, he wants to get better and better and I have no doubt that he will do that purely because the way he goes about his business. We are lucky to have him here."
