Former Coventry City forward Craig Bellamy is off to join Cardiff City according to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool and Cardiff have being reported as having agreed a free transfer and Bellamy has been allowed to return to his home town club for 'personal reasons'

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is quoted by Wales On-Line as saying:  “I would think so. I had a really good chat with Craig when I first arrived here.

“He is not one who can play every week, he is 33 and coming towards the final years of his career.

“He has made a massive commitment to come to Liverpool, to reside up here on his own.

“He enjoys playing for the club, but I believe that at the end of last season he had already made his decision.

“I obviously respect that. “What is so important is a player’s happiness.

“Unless a player is happy you don’t get the maximum from them.

“Cardiff is probably where he will end up. If he does, we wish him the very best. He will still be a Liverpool supporter.

“It is not for football reasons that he is leaving, but for personal ones.

“I understand his thinking.

“He is 33 and has travelled around the country for his whole career, so there are compassionate reasons.

“We will look at it. But we will wish him the best and move forward.”
