Liverpool in contact with Birmingham teenager Jobe Bellingham

Liverpool are moving for Birmingham City teenager Jobe Bellingham.

The 16-year-old, who is brother of Borussia Dortmund's Jude, has made three appearances for the Blues this season.

The Mirror says the Reds have asked to be informed about the youngster's situation at Birmingham with a view to making a move.

Lee Bowyer's side have offered Bellingham scholarship terms but he is free to sign a professional contract with other clubs when he turns 17 in September.

Birmingham are thought to be fighting to keep the midfielder by offering him assurances over his development.

Bellingham is able to play across a number of positions in midfield and his versatility is one of the attributes that makes him attractive to clubs.

Despite his young age, he has already made three appearances this season, having made his debut at 16 years and 107 days against Plymouth Argyle in January.
