      LFC confirm Bellamy transfer
      Liverpool Football Club can today confirm that Craig Bellamy has completed a transfer to Championship side Cardiff City.

      The Welsh forward first joined Liverpool in 2006 but departed for West Ham a year later.

      He returned to Anfield for a second stint in 2011 and in January 2012 netted the goal that took the Reds back to Wembley for the first time in 16 years.

      In total Bellamy scored 18 goals in 79 games for Liverpool.

      Everyone at the club would like to wish him all the best for the future.

      Official


      Sad to see you go, Craig. Thanks for all the goals and the effort and a whole lot more, much appreciated.

      YNWA.

      Helped us on our way to our first appearance at the new Wembley, contributed with goals last season, linked up well everytime he played with Maxi and Luis, tried to start a fight with Reo-Coker at half-time in the defeat at Bolton, all in all one little warrior and a red to boot!

      Cheers for everything Craig Bellamy.

      Thanks for everything Craig. I think you exceeded everyone's expectations last season. Scored some really important goals, especially the one that put us into the carling cup final. Apparently he gave a big nudge to Joe Allen in our direction too :D

      Of all the teams as well, I'm happy to see him back at Cardiff. Good luck for the rest of your career Bellars!

      Incredibly gutted to see him go. One of those people that would benefit any team. His attitude and passion was a breath of fresh air.

      All the best, Bellars. Much respect to you for what you've achieved and hope you do the same at Cardiff. Takes a proper footballer to demand to leave the mega riches of a club like City and not sit on your arse like others have done.

      Sad to see him leave as he would of been an excellent squad player for us to call on and his passion is second to none.

      Bit of a legend is Craig:

      Departing Craig Bellamy helped persuade Joe Allen to join Liverpool
      CRAIG BELLAMY completed his free transfer to Cardiff City – and then revealed one of his last acts as a Liverpool FC player had been helping to convince Joe Allen to move to Anfield.
       
      The Welsh international forward signed a two-year contract with the npower Championship club, after informing Reds boss Brendan Rodgers of his desire to move back to South Wales for family reasons.
       
      The switch brings to an end Bellamy’s second stint on Merseyside, in which he made 39 appearances, scoring nine times.
       
      The 33-year-old was unveiled by Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay at a press conference on Friday afternoon.

      Bellamy has spent the past few weeks on duty with Team GB at the Olympic Games, and admits he had spoken at length with Allen about the young midfielder’s move from Swansea to Liverpool.
       
      “I spent the last three weeks hounding Joe Allen to go to Liverpool,” said Bellamy. “They have got an immense player.
       
      “Joe, Brendan and Liverpool will all be great winners out of this. It has been a pleasure to spend the last few weeks with him.”
       
      Bellamy is understood to have taken a substantial wage cut in order to force through the move.
       
      He enjoyed a productive loan spell with the club during the 2010/11 season, scoring 11 times in 36 appearances, and he insists his decision to leave Liverpool was an emotional one.
       
      “I was never interested in a move anywhere else,” he said. “The hardest thing for me was leaving Liverpool. I am a Liverpool fan and Kenny (Dalglish) was great for me.
       
      “I am a huge fan of Brendan and I think Liverpool will do great under him. But even that couldn’t tempt me. It just wasn’t going to happen for me.
       
      “The supporters at Liverpool have been immense and the way they have been with me about this has been amazing. But my mind was made up. I am doing it for the right reasons.”
