‘He’s one of our own’.

It’s a song that has become popular on terraces across over the past couple of years. It’s accompanied the likes of Harry Kane, Phil Foden and up until his departure to Spurs last night Ryan Sessegnon.

Well it looks as if Birmingham fans could be in the process of getting their own ‘one of our own’ chant in the coming years. As a result of his debut against in the defeat to Portsmouth in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, Jude Bellingham became the youngest player to ever pull on a Blues shirt, breaking the record set by Trevor Francis back in 1970.

Having been part of the club since he was eight-years-old, the 16-year-old man has already started turning heads at senior level, making FourFourTwo’s ’50 most exciting teenagers list back in February’.

The club interviewed him yesterday about his record-breaking experience as well as his overall thoughts about breaking into the first-team at such a young age.

Well needless to say, the fans were overwhelmed by the responses given by the young man. They praised his levels of maturity and expressed how they have high hopes that he can develop into something in the future.

He even managed to get praise from one of his teammates.
