Craig Bellamy is on the verge of a return to Liverpool, according to Sky Sports News.

The Welsh international was given permission to leave the Red Dragon's camp to complete a medical and agree terms with the Reds earlier in the day, although a deal is still to be confirmed between Manchester City and the Anfield outfit.

It would be the player's second-coming at Liverpool, having spent a season under Rafa Benitez in the 2006-07 season.

SSN report that Bellamy arrived at the club's Melwood training ground less than two hours before the 11pm deadline, with Kenny Dalglish hoping to finalise the deal and secure a final Liverpool signing in the window.

Bellamy would join Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, Alexander Doni and Jose Enrique as summer signings at Liverpool, in what the Merseysiders would describe as a successful period.

Scottish international Adam has already tweeted his excitement at the possibility of Bellamy's Liverpool arrival, even if the former Blackpool player spelt the former West Ham striker's name wrong.

"Bellemy could be a big signing for LFC," said the central midfielder.

Confirmation is still to come from Liverpool or Manchester City over the loan deal.
