Hector Bellerin vows to give £50 for every minute he plays in the European Under-21 Championships to Grenfell Tower fund

The Arsenal right-back is in action for Spain's Under-21 side this summer

Hector Bellerin has vowed to give £50 to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire for every minute he plays during this summer’s Under-21 European Championships.

The young Spaniard announced his donation plans via his Twitter account on Saturday morning, while urging others to support the victims in any way they can.

Bellerin is one of football’s most highly-rated young full-backs, with the 22-year-old expected to be a first-team regular for Spain’s U21 side this summer.

Albert Celades’ team go into the tournament as one of the favourites to win the title, with their first match against Macedonia on Saturday evening,

In fact, should Bellerin and co. reach the final in Sweden, then the young Arsenal right-back could end up donating more than £22,500 to victims of the disaster.
