Bellingham Agreement

Elsewhere at Birmingham City, starlet Jobe Bellingham signed his first professional contract with the Blues.

Bellingham, brother to Borussia Dortmund and England ace Jude, has featured four times for Birmingham’s first team this season as he seeks to follow in his older brother’s footsteps.

Sunderland were among a handful of clubs tipped to move for the 17-year-old this summer before he committed his future to John Eustace.

Everton have been tipped to resume the race to sign Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz this summer.

The Toffees, short of attacking bodies, secured the signing of Neal Maupay from Brighton over the summer and Pete O’Rourke believes they will be looking to add the Chilean to their ranks when the winter window opens .

O’Rourke told Give Me Sport: “I’m sure Brereton Diaz will be someone they (Everton) will look at again in January knowing that his price will also be reduced due to his contract situation. So I think that Everton, if they are looking for attacking reinforcements, Brereton Diaz will probably be quite high in the list.

Brereton Diaz scored 22 goals in 37 league games last season and has a return of four goals and one assist so far this campaign playing mostly on the left wing under Jon Dahl Tomasson.
