Etihad Stadium outcast set for Anfield return.
Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy is undergoing a medical at Liverpool ahead of a proposed return to Anfield.
The exact structure of the deal for the 32-year-old is still unclear, with both sides discussing the merits of a season-long loan or a permanent free transfer.
The Wales international has been given permission by his national manager to leave the squad and travel to Merseyside to complete the deal.
There have been rumors this deal could be in the pipeline for some time, but this morining it looked as if QPR had pipped Liverpool to his signature.
The Reds made their move after agreeing to sell David Ngog to Bolton Wanderers for £4 million.
The only possible hitch to the deal is Bellamy’s wage demands, which he refuses to lower from £90,000-a-week.
But Liverpool believe they can convince the player that Anfield is where his short-term future lies and that he can be part of something special.
Bellamy spent a season playing for the Reds in 2009/10 under manager Rafa Benitez, helping the club to the Champions League final.
But the Welshman’s career has stalled since Roberto Mancini arrived at City, where the two men clashed, resulting in Bellamy training with the youth team before he was sent on-loan to Cardiff City.
