Craig Bellamy's return to Liverpool hinges on Manchester City allowing the forward to leave on a free, according to The Mirror.

The Welsh striker, who spent last season on loan at Cardiff City, is set to re-join The Reds after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium.

With Liverpool expected to lose David N'Gog to Bolton Wanderers, Bellamy is seen as the ideal replacement.


City have attracted a reputation at not allowing their fringe players to leave easily, with the likes of Shaun Wright-Phillips, Roque Sant-Cruz and Wayne Bridge all unable to leave the club despite being mostly unused by the club.

As a result, a deal to bring Bellamy to Liverpool could prove to be a long drawn out process, one that would be sped up significantly if the club can grant a free transfer to Bellamy.

However, with Liverpool and City expected to be viewing for two of the Champions League spots for net season, it is yet unknown whether the club will allow one of their own to go and strengthen a potential rival.
