Liverpool Closing in on Free International Striker

Bellamy will be allowed to leave Manchester City for freeManchester City forward Craig Bellamy has moved a step closer to a shock return to Liverpool, according to the Daily Mail. Bellamy spent a season at Anfield after joining them in 2006, before being sold on to West Ham. Bellamy has been the talk of speculation throughout the summer with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini revealing that he did not feature in any of his future plans.

The Wales international spent the 2010/11 campaign on loan to Championship club Cardiff, with reports linking him returning to the club for the new season, however Cardiff revealed the would not be attempting to sign Bellamy due to his wage demands. The 32 year-old captained the Bluebirds and led them to the play-offs, scoring 11 goals in 35 games along the way.

In his previous stint at Anfield, Bellamy made a slow start to his season, taking him just under 2 months to score his first goal for the club. He made the switch from Blackburn Rovers after he enjoyed his most prolific season yet, scoring 13 goals in 27 games, which attracted Liverpool to bring him to the Kop. Despite his unimpressive season at Liverpool in the past, Kenny Dalglish is ready to bring the Welshman back to Anfield. This would be Dalglish’s 5th big summer signing following the arrivals of: Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing.

Adam is now an online veteran of publishing and has experience across all the leagues. A Liverpool fan since he was a child, Adam brings you all the latest gossip from Anfield, good or bad!
