Cardiff City have confirmed today, that they “would love to talk” to Craig Bellamy if the Wales striker decides to leave Liverpool.
The Bluebirds are checking their finances in case they have a chance to re-sign the 32-year-old who Captained Cardiff during a season-long loan spell in 2010-2011.
Bellamy has one year left on a two-year deal at Liverpool after joining from Manchester City in August 2011.
The Cardiff-born forward, who has scored 19 goals in 69 Welsh internationals, is a former Norwich City team-mate of Cardiff boss Malky Mackay.
Cardiff’s owners recently announced a controversial £100 million investment plan, as the club that have suffered three successive play-off disappointments bid for Premier League promotion.
“We’d love to have Craig back,” said Alan Whiteley, the Cardiff Chief Executive.
“But he is a Liverpool player and until Liverpool and Craig decide what they are going to do, there are conversations that we can’t even have at the moment.
“We don’t know how it is going to pan out and it is for Craig and Liverpool to decide what they are going to do first.
“But if Craig decides he is going to leave Liverpool and Liverpool are prepared to let him go, then clearly we’d love to talk to him.”
