Cardiff want to re-sign Liverpool’s Bellamy
Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy could be set for a return to Cardiff City after the Welsh side admitted they want to re-sign their former loan player, Wales Online has reported.
Bellamy spent a year online with the Championship side in 2010-11 after falling out of favour at Manchester City, scoring 11 goals in his 35 appearances. But a permanent move did not materialise, with Bellamy instead joining Liverpool on a free transfer last summer, his second spell at Anfield after spending a year in red between 2006 and 2007.
The Cardiff-born former Wales captain could be available for around £2m, Wales Online adds, while a loan move is described as possible but unlikely. Cardiff manager Malky Mackay is said to have financial support in order to gain promotion to the Premier League next season, making a move for Bellamy viable.
Last season Bellamy scored nine goals in 33 games for Liverpool as the club finished eighth in the Premier League under Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked in May to make way for Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers. Bellamy was part of the Liverpool side that defeat Cardiff in the League Cup final in February 2012.
