Sebastian Coates and Craig Bellamy could feature against Stoke tomorrow. Kenny Dalgish welcomed the additions of Coates and Bellamy just before the transfer window closed. "Sebastian was on Damien's radar for two years. Obviously he would have only been 18 then," said the boss. "He came to prominence in the Copa America when he won it with Uruguay and was voted Young Player of the Tournament - and that's not a bad accolade when you consider (Alexis) Sanchez went for 40 million to Barcelona. He must have played well! "We're happy to have him in. We just need to give him time to settle down and we look forward to it. "It's the same with Craig. He's really enthusiastic at being back and made a lot of sacrifices to come back, financially and otherwise, because of what the club means to him. We're delighted to have people with that attitude here. "I don't know why I've never signed him before in my managerial career. Maybe I wasn't working when he was available. He's always been somebody that has impressed me. "He's got pace, quality, he loves this club - which is very important - and he'll be a fantastic asset for us." When asked if the duo were ready to play against Stoke tomorrow the King replied: "I would think so. I would hope so. I think everybody is chomping at the bit to be involved at Stoke."
