Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy has revealed he will stay with Cardiff City until they realise their ambition of promotion to the Premier League.
The Welshman has been on loan at the Championship outfit since the beginning of the season, but saw a defeat to Middlesborough and Norwich City's subsequent victory over Portsmouth condemn them to the play-offs.
But despite the setback Bellamy has confirmed he will stay with Cardiff for as long as it takes to get them into the Barclays Premier League, ending his association with City.
"If it (promotion) is a missed opportunity this year, I will definitely be here next year, definitely.
"I want this club to get into the Premier League and even if it finishes my career doing so, I'll make sure that happens.
"I've made too many promises to myself, my kids, my friends and people around me that if I don't it'll be a massive disappointment for me, but I'll be here next year trying to do the same."
"I'm here for the year and Manchester City have been great, they know my situation and they know I only want to play for Manchester City in the Premier League, I don't want to play for anyone else.
"I hear stories about other clubs, why would I choose them now when I could have chosen them last year?
"My stance is clear on this. If I can't play for Manchester City in the Premier League, I won't play for anyone else in the Premier League. I'm adamant on that."
