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.
