Jude Bellingham quickly deleted a tweet responding to reports claiming he is on his way to Liverpool and has been telling people just that.

Craig Hignett, who played for Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Leicester City among others, raised eyebrows when he said Bellingham returning to English football with the Reds was "almost a cert".

"I think I’ve heard it on good authority and I can’t say where I’ve heard it from, but apparently he has been saying that he is Liverpool bound,” the 51-year-old said on BBC Radio Merseyside.

“Whether that is January or whether that is the end of the season isn’t sure yet, but I think, I have it on good authority that it is almost a cert.”

Bellingham then responded by quote-tweeting Four Four Two's story, the Borussia Dortmund star posting a GIF of him laughing to let everyone know what he makes of Hignett's claims.

Bellingham swiftly deleted his tweet but of course in this day and age, plenty were quick to screen record so that the evidence very much exists still.

The 18-year-old is one of the most sought after midfielders in European football at the moment, having excelled at Dortmund since making the move from boyhood club Birmingham City last year.

The youngest goalscorer in Dortmund's history, Bellingham was voted 'Newcomer of the Season' by his fellow players in Germany after an excellent debut campaign that earned him a place in England's Euro 2020 squad.

Sebastian Kehl, who is Dortmund's sporting director, has revealed Liverpool are one of many clubs in for the teenager but is adamant he will not be leaving Signal Iduna Park.

"He is a Borussia Dortmund player and remains a Borussia Dortmund player,” Kehl told Sport1.

"There's a lot of interest around Jude Bellingham, not only Liverpool.

"But there is no bottom line and no exit clause. He is loved, he enjoys that. There are no signs he could leave Dortmund soon."

According to German outlet BILD, Dortmund are interested in Bellingham's younger brother Jobe and hope the possible arrival of his sibling would help convince him to stay put.
