Jobe Bellingham, brother of Jude Bellingham, has been linked to several Premier League clubs, such as Tottenham, Brentford, and Crystal Palace.

However, he intends to stay at Sunderland, which competes in the English second division, for at least another season.

This information comes from journalist Fabrizio Romano, who mentions that Crystal Palace has been the club most keen on signing the 18-year-old English midfielder. Despite this interest, Bellingham trusts the "ambitious" project of the "Black Cats," who have not played in the Premier League since the 2016/17 season.

In his first season at Sunderland, which signed him from Birmingham City in the summer of 2023 for €1.75M, Jobe Bellingham scored seven goals and provided one assist in 47 games for the "Black Cats," who finished 16th in the Championship.

Bellingham's decision to stay at Sunderland reflects his confidence in the club's direction and his desire to continue developing his skills in a familiar environment. His performance last season demonstrated his potential, and he has quickly become an integral part of the team's setup. The young midfielder's commitment to Sunderland suggests he sees the club as a good platform for his growth and possibly helping them push for promotion in the near future.

Sunderland fans will be pleased with Bellingham's decision, as his contributions on the field were a bright spot in an otherwise challenging season. The club will look to build around his talents and those of other key players as they aim to climb the Championship standings and potentially secure a return to the Premier League.

As the new season approaches, the focus will be on how Bellingham can further his development and impact on the pitch. His performances will be closely watched, not just by Sunderland supporters but also by Premier League clubs still interested in his progress. For now, though, Jobe Bellingham remains committed to Sunderland and their shared ambitions for the future.
