“Turn out the lights, the party’s over” as Willie Nelson so expertly put it.
Having been linked with a move away for the best part of a year, the Jude Bellingham era (era might be a tad too much, but you get the drift) will finally reach its conclusion on Wednesday night against Derby County, as the club confirmed today that he will depart for Borussia Dortmund following our final game of the season.
Some reports state that the fee will be £25m upfront, with ‘several millions more’ being added on when it comes to add-ons.
Do you wish we could have held onto Bellingham a little longer?
So now that the deal is finally confirmed, with no going back from either side at this stage, there wasn’t much that Blues fans could do than wish him all the best in his new career, but there was one thing that they wanted to happen before they wished him goodbye.
Make the little diamond captain on Wednesday, he’s acted like one all season, let him end with a flourish, win the game and fly off into the German sunset 👏🏻 https://t.co/gvNYVH91X0

Jude Bellingham announcement seemingly imminent.
With the majority of our remaining squad being gutless shithouses, let's just make him captain for the day on Wednesday. https://t.co/HDzQBQHerV
