Craig Bellamy has admitted he does not know if West Ham will sell him in the January transfer window.

Reports have suggested that Manchester City are preparing to table a bid for the Welsh international striker.

And Bellamy told talkSPORT: "It's that time of year, there's always a lot of speculation."

He continued: "I'm very happy at West Ham and I'm never going to go in and ask for move. But you don't know what position the club is in.

"You don't know if they are going to accept bids or not accept bids. Look what happened to Anton Ferdinand. As far as we knew he wasn't going and then he was gone.

"My situation was that Manchester City put a bid in [in the summer] and West Ham turned it down so if that happens again...

"Maybe a club will be interested. I'm not saying that's going to happen - but if a club do (come in) and West Ham turn it down I'm still a West Ham player."

Bellamy is impressed with Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola - and revealed the Italian still bamboozles the Hammers players in training.

He explained: "He's a really good guy. I was fortunate enough to play against him and everyone in football knows how special he was."

As for training, he continued: "He's too good. It was getting embarrassing. I had to say 'look, gaffer, we're trying to go in to a game on Saturday and a lot of the players are losing confidence when you're turning them on a sixpence.'"
