Anfield boss beats White Hart Lane manager to attacker signing.
Craig Bellamy swept back into Liverpool as the forgotten men of the Barclays Premier League dominated transfer deadline day.
As clubs scrambled to complete deals and managers left training grounds in darkness, Bellamy made a frantic dash from Cardiff to Liverpool to have a medical with his former employers.
That did not stop Tottenham making a late bid to wrestle the Welshman from Liverpool’s clutches with the offer of a two-year deal, but Bellamy was given the Merseysiders’ No 39 shirt.

Former Liverpool man Craig Bellamy became Kenny Dalglish’s seventh signing of the summer and it appears that the Welshman opted to turn down a move to North London in order to make the move to Merseyside.
Having already invested upwards of £50m snapping up Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, Doni, Jose Enrique and Sebastian Coates, Dalglish felt it necessary to beef up his attacking options and clearly made an offer that Bellamy felt he could not refuse.
The 32 year old may feel he has some unfinished business at Liverpool having spent just one season at the club in his previous spell. During that term he helped Rafa Benitez’s side to a Champions League final berth but was an unused sub on that occasion and will hope he can help the side back into the coveted competition again.
It became even more imperative that Liverpool landed some attacking back up after David N’Gog secured his £4m move to Bolton.
