The Bluebirds can be sure that they will be watching a quality player this season. Bellamy was one of the standout players in a Manchester City team that finished 6th in the Premiership. Cardiff City will now recieve a massive boost for promotion.
With a host of clubs interested in Bellamy including Celtic and Everton, Bellamy decided to return to his home town. Spurs manager Harry Redknapp will be left fuming after City rightly declined Tottenhams LOAN advances for the 31-year-old striker. Harry will now be looking to see who else he can try and LOAN from City after already having a loan bid turned down for Lescott. LOL.
Good luck to Craig & Cardiff City this year... Money isn't everything you know... although he will obviously still be getting the same wage packet as City will be paying the majority of his wages - so it's a wonder why Motherwell are getting their knickers in a twist. Motherwell want to take Cardiff to court because they owe them money for a transfer last season.
It was obvious City were prepared to subsidise the deal because of the emphatic thanks Bellamy gave City board for allowing this deal to happen.
Craig Bellamy Interview
Craig Bellamy said in a press conference that he wanted to return to his child hood heros after moving around the country for six years.
"I had the greatest time at Manchester City, I helped the club get to the next level. I'm sure they'll get the premiership title in a couple of seasons... and I really hope they do."
