Liverpool Boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the Reds are in talks with Cardiff City over the possibility of Craig Bellamy rejoining the Welsh club.
Bellamy scored six goals in 24 appearances for Liverpool after moving to Anfield on a free transfer little over 12 months ago.
“We have been in talks with him and Cardiff,” said the Liverpool manager. Rodgers revealed he spoke to Bellamy during the early stages of the summer and the striker revealed his desire to be back closer to his family.
“I had a really good meeting with Craig before I moved up here,” Rodgers said. “He is a big Liverpool supporter but I also understand his thinking.
“He is 33 and has travelled around the country all his life, so there are compassionate reasons. We will look at it but we will wish him all the best and move forward.”
Rodgers has also confirmed Liverpool haven’t received any bid for Daniel Agger, but admitted Liverpool would consider parting with the defender if the price is right.
“Daniel is a top player and you do not want to lose your best players,” Rodgers said. “He has been here seven years. He loves the club and its supporters. But every player has his price and we will see where it goes.”
Agger probably is the most complete centre-back in the Premier League and I wonder how the Reds can replace a player with Agger’s ability especially when Liverpool are not offering Champions league football.
