Ex-Spurs striker Bent: What Liverpool captain Henderson texted me about Bellingham

Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has revealed an exchange he's had with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson about Jude Bellingham.

Bent has revealed his conversation with Henderson that states just how much Borussia Dortmund midfielder Bellingham is valued among is teammates.

“Bellingham's incredible, he's only 19 years old and plays with a kind of fearlessness, doesn't he?" Bent told TalkSport. “He can take the ball, go past people, create opportunities. He is an incredible talent. I really like what he's done. He went from Birmingham, nurtured his talents and went to Borussia Dortmund, who have polished him off and made him into a world-beater.

“He could be one of the best midfielders in the world because he's got all the attributes. He's quick, he's strong, he's powerful, he can score a goal and can see a pass. I messaged Hendo the other day and I said, 'Jude Bellingham, what a player.'

“All he messaged me back was, 'You have no idea.'"
