Bellamy is a possibility – Bruce

City boss Roberto Mancini has made it clear the 32-year-old Wales

international, who spent last term on loan at hometown club

Cardiff, is not part of his plans this season. Bruce has already

added nine new faces to his squad this summer, but remains on the

lookout following the departure of Steed Malbranque to St Etienne.

Quoted in several newspapers, Bruce said: “I haven’t got a wide

left player, not a natural one, although we’ve got people who can

play there, so we’ll see. “We’re all looking at Manchester City

because they’ve got some great players who can’t even get in the

squad. “Craig Bellamy is a possibility. He can play wide left and

up front so we’ll see. “I’d think every manager’s looking at City.

Steed leaving frees up a wage for us.” Bellamy has also been linked

with a return to Celtic, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell

six years ago while a Newcastle player.
