Chelsea have reportedly withdrawn their interest in signing Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham.
Having already established himself as a key player at St Andrew's at the age of 16, the midfielder is naturally being linked with a move to a bigger club.
The Blues have been monitoring the development of the prospect ahead of potentially launching an approach during the next transfer window.
Earlier on Monday, it was suggested that Dortmund had emerged as the favourites to sign Bellingham, who may cost in the region of £30m.
The academy graduate has just one year left on his existing terms at the Championship side.
