Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy has been told to jump at the chance to join his Wales team-mates at West Ham.

Bellamy, recently named Wales captain in the wake of Ryan Giggs´ retirement from international football, is believed to be a summer target for the Hammers with a £9m fee mooted. The Wales captain´s arrival at Upton Park would meet with the approval of West Ham and Wales defenders Danny Gabbidon and James Collins.

Gabbidon said: "He would love it at West Ham. He would be an instant fans´ favourite. Craig is a quality player but what West Ham fans would love is that he never stops running, even if the team are 3-0 down."
