"I messaged Hendo the other day and I said, ‘Jude Bellingham, what a player. All he messaged me back was, 'you have no idea.'
"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. 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."
Bellingham is expected to inform Dortmund of his desire to leave the club after the World Cup and is expected to make a summer transfer, possibly to the Premier League.
