Bellamy closing on Bluebirds return


Craig Bellamy looks set to return to Cardiff City this summer.

The Wales international, who suffered heartbreak at the weekend when Great Britain lost to South Korea in a quarter-final penalty shootout at the Olympics, took in a loan spell at his hometown club during the 2010-11 season. He was unable to lead the Bluebirds into the Premier League, and that summer he left Manchester City on a permanent basis and returned to the top-flight by securing a move to Liverpool.

Bellamy remains under contract at Anfield until the end of the coming campaign, but it looks as though Brendan Rodgers is prepared to let him make a return to Cardiff. It is believed the Reds are even willing to let the forward make the move on a free transfer, despite impressing in many of his 27 league appearances last season.

Mark Hughes, the Queens Park Rangers manager, is also interested in the 33-year-old, but it is widely thought that the player prefers a return to his roots and should the move be cemented, he would likely to see out the remainder of his playing days at Cardiff.
