Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is ready to snub interest from Liverpool in order to join Tottenham, it has been claimed.

According to Metro, the Wales international has told Spurs representatives that he will complete a free transfer to north London, rather than Merseyside.

Bellamy has reportedly been identified by Kenny Dalglish as the ideal player to provide cover for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, but it would appear the Scot's attempts to bring the forward to Anfield will be fruitless.

Liverpool was Bellamy's home for one season before the 32-year-old joined West Ham in 2007.


But a Liverpool return is said to be out of the question, with Bellamy preferring to fight for a starting berth at White Hart Lane rather than provide back-up for Suarez.

Spurs have already signed Emmanuel Adebayor from on loan from City to bolster their strikeforce, although Harry Redknapp is thought to be keen to add another goalscoring to his ranks.

The Spurs boss could, however, reportedly have to make do without Peter Crouch, who may join Stoke before the close of the transfer window.
