Bellamy set to sign for Man City

6:25 am on 20 January 2009

The Wales striker Craig Bellamy is set to leave West Ham for big-spenders Manchester City.

The London club has accepted City's bid of around $30 million for the 29-year-old and Bellamy is expected to rapidly complete a medical to clinch the deal.

The much-travelled Bellamy had demanded a transfer to Tottenham after rejecting the offer of a new contract, but his club was unwilling to sell to their London rivals.


Bellamy joined West Ham from Liverpool last season having also previously played at Norwich, Coventry, Newcastle, Celtic and Blackburn and has 16 goals in 54 appearances for Wales.
