Reports have linked us to Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy for what seems like 30 years now. These reports seem to be increasing as rumours suggest Rafa Benitez is about to have a clear out at Anfield to freshen things up for another Premiership (failed) challenge next season!
Due to the fact he is one of the fringe players for the Reds, Villa are again being linked to the former Coventry and Blackburn player with reports suggesting Martin O'Neill will put in an offer for the Wales international who played for him on loan at Celtic.
Bellamy certainly gets a mixed reaction and appears to be coming a journeyman, unable to settle at any club and often causing unrest in the dressing rooms and on the golf courses, just ask John Arne Riise!
Mark Hughes is also said to be interested in taking him back to Blackburn. Bellamy apparently only left Blackburn due to the fact he was a Pool fan as a kid - or some other load of tripe like that!
So what do you reckon, to Bellend or not to Bellend?
He made 23 starts for Liverpool, 4 sub appearances and was replaced 12 times. In that time he scored just 7 Premiership goals and bagged two in Europe. On top of that he has been known to be injury prone. On the flip side, he has pace to burn and is a nasty snarling player, the sort Villa have lacked for years. Hmmm, tough being a manager isn't it!?
Our latest poll asks if you'd sign him or not.
