BVB midfielder Jude Bellingham calm about being most expensive 17 year-old transfer

Former Birmingham City midfielder Jude Bellingham insists he will not be fazed by his record transfer fee after signing for German giants Borussia Dortmund.

The teen signed for an initial £25million to become the most expensive 17-year-old in football history.

"No, not really. It's almost a nice thing to have, BVB putting that much faith in me to deliver," he told reporters.

"But, for me, the pressure I put on myself is more than the pressure of any price tag or [expectation from any] media outlet. I will try and do the best for me and this club regardless of the price tag."
