Harry urges Bell to stay in Prem

August 17, 2010

The Bluebirds are reportedly in the frame to land the Manchester City misfit on loan, with Bellamy admitting he would consider dropping down to the Championship to reignite his career. Redknapp would love to sign the Wales captain but reckons there is no chance of City handing him over to one of their main rivals for a top-four spot in the Premier League. New Fulham manager Mark Hughes is also chasing the 31-year-old and Redknapp believes Craven Cottage is a more likely destination for Bellamy. Redknapp said of the prospect of Bellamy joining Cardiff: "Good luck to Cardiff but it would be a waste of an outstanding player. "He should stay in the Premier League for sure." Redknapp, who lost out to City for Bellamy's signature 18 months ago, added: "He's a Premier League player - a top Premier League player in my opinion. "I think someone's going to have to end up buying him probably. Unless Manchester City do decide to end up loaning him to a club like Fulham. "I couldn't see them loaning him to someone like us." Redknapp has also been linked with Nice striker Loic Remy, who was recently being chased by Stoke. The Spurs boss would not confirm if Remy was a target but hinted if a new striker were to arrive, he would be prepared to let one of Robbie Keane or Roman Pavyluchenko leave. "In our situation, five strikers would be too many," he said. "I wouldn't want to put myself in that situation. You'd end up with one or two good ones out in the cold and it would create a bad atmosphere at the club. "Because when you have too many around and one or two start getting them hump about everything, it can cause upset in the club and the dressing room."
