Bellamy to Spurds £15m

Recommended Posts

Sky Sports News understands Tottenham Hotspur are in talks with West Ham United over a deal for Craig Bellamy.


The financial uncertainty at Upton Park has led to speculation that Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola may be forced into selling his best players.


Zola outlined his determination to keep his leading figures earlier this week and admitted he would be 'very annoyed' if he did lose any members of his squad.


Bellamy has also spoken of his happiness at West Ham recently after he was linked with a return to Celtic where he previously spent a spell on loan.


However, he admitted he was unsure if the Hammers would accept any bids, and Sky Sports News understands that Spurs are now trying to test their London rivals' resolve.


Negotiations between the two clubs are understood to have started, with West Ham keen to recoup almost double the £7.5million they paid for Bellamy 18 months ago.


Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has admitted he is hoping to improve his squad in the New Year, but insists he will not pay 'crazy prices' for new players.


Redknapp is short of attacking options at White Hart Lane, with Darren Bent, Roman Pavlyuchenko and the on-loan Fraizer Campbell the only recognised strikers available.


Bellamy has returned to fitness with West Ham this season and has scored twice in the Premier League, including in the recent 1-1 draw at title-chasing Chelsea.

Because of his injury record i wouldn't pay more than say £5-£6m but the fact is if he stays fit, he's scoring 1 in 3, sets up goals and his pace, movement and work rate are a constant threat, so he's good signing, all dependent on his fitness.


So if you could get him on the cheap, i'd jump at the chance, but for the usual inflated fee, i'd say no thanks.
