Jude Bellingham sell-on claim made as Birmingham City rivals face points deduction

Welcome to BirminghamLive’s coverage of all things Birmingham City.

Jude claim

The sell-on clause Birmingham City agreed when Jude Bellingham moved to Borussia Dortmund might not be the gold mine Blues supporters hoped it would be.

That’s according to Sport 1 podcast Die Dortmund-Woche, via Sport Witness, which claims Blues will be due only five per cent of the profit in the event Dortmund sell the gilded teenager.

Blues sold Bellingham to the Bundesliga outfit in the summer of 2020 after he burst on to the scene by making more than 40 appearances in his one season in the senior team.

Dortmund, who are believed to have paid around £30m for the teenager, beat Manchester United to his signature. Now 18, Bellingham has continued to clear every hurdle, even on the Champions League and international stages.

After just one season with Borussia speculation that the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City want to bring him back to the Premier League has already started.

According to the Daily Star , the Reds want to sign Bellingham in a potential £80 million deal – which would represent something like a £50m profit for Dortmund.

If Die Dortmund-Woche is correct, Blues would receive only five per cent of that, far less than the example they cite which was Jadon Sancho’s £85m move to United, of which £12.75m went to his training club, Manchester City.

Borussia have repeatedly said they have no intention of selling the midfielder any time soon.

Making their point

Reading are the latest Championship club to find themselves in hot water with the EFL over financial breaches.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who today claimed the Royals are in “advanced talks” with the governing body over a points deduction.

The story says they could be docked between six-nine points for breaking profit and sustainability rules.

Reading were placed under a transfer embargo in the summer, which restricted them to signing only free agents and loans, including Alen Halilovic, and just as happened to Birmingham City a few years ago are now facing the loss of points.

Blues were docked nine in the 2018/2019 season after taking their case all the way to a disciplinary commission.

They were then reprimanded for breaching an EFL business plan as the transfer madness of 2017 caught up with them.

Sheffield Wednesday lost six last year over the sale of Hillsborough and this season Derby are also facing a points deduction after going into administration – and potentially a second for their accounting practices.

Reading now seem to have joined the list – which has not escaped the attention of Blues fans.

Not happy

Steve Spooner spared Neil Etheridge from his withering criticism of his Birmingham City side after Monday night’s 5-0 horror show against Nottingham Forest.

Blues Under-23s were 4-0 down by half-time and a livid Spooner savaged his team – with the exception of Etheridge, without whom he felt the result might have been twice as bad.

While Blues only conceded once in the second half, not even that appeased the development team coach, who claimed some players had taken “a coward’s way out”.

Speaking to Blues TV after the game, Spooner let rip: “First half totally unacceptable, second half an improvement but that says a lot about players’ characters for me.

“They want the ball at 5-0 down, I want them to have the ball at 0-0. And that really summed it up, the second half performance to the first. And that’s a coward’s way out.

“They were head and shoulders above us, they ran harder, they passed quicker, they were more determined than us and that makes me very angry to have to say that because that is the non-negotiables.

“We were just way off it, absolutely way off it first half. If it wasn’t for Neil in the first half we could have come in probably six or seven down.

“He was probably our man of the match, which is a sad situation when your goalkeeper is man of the match having had five put past him. But it could have been nine or ten and I am lost for words with it.
