Craig Bellamy told Manchester City he only wanted to play for Cardiff and not another Barclays Premier League club.

The Wales striker got his wish and has dropped down a division after agreeing a season-long loan deal with his hometown team.

City chief executive Garry Cook revealed: "Craig indicated that he didn't want to settle for just another club, but wanted to go to help his hometown team and try to help them win promotion to the top flight."

He added: "It was an admirable decision and we wish him and Cardiff all the very best for his new challenge.

"I am sure City fans have enjoyed seeing Craig play for City. He has been a great performer for us and I would like to go on record thanking him for his effort and determination to our cause.

"It is clear that it was right for Craig to make a move, and Manchester City has the utmost respect for the choice he has made."
