Craig Bellamy will today complete his £6m transfer from Blackburn Rovers to Liverpool after agreeing a four-year deal with the Merseyside club commanding wages of around £45,000 a week, considerably less than was on offer had he opted to prolong his stay at Ewood Park.

 

Rovers had proposed a similar four-year deal which would have increased his weekly pay packet to nearer £60,000 but the Wales international opted for Anfield. The boyhood Liverpool fan undertook a medical yesterday, cutting short a holiday in Greece, and met Rafael Benítez to discuss the terms of the transfer.

Confirmation of the deal will disappoint Blackburn's manager Mark Hughes, who had revitalised Bellamy's career last season after a turbulent spell under Graeme Souness at Newcastle. The 26-year-old scored 17 times in 32 appearances as a Rover, with the club reluctantly allowing him to talk to Liverpool as the £6m fee activated a clause in his contract if interest was expressed by a club participating in the Champions League.

Rafa has just gone up in my, already highly esteemed, regard. Cisse his bargaining chip of the Summer gets wiped out, but no bother, Rafa goes and buys a player that will be a significant improvement, for less than Cisse would have/still will go for, with no bidding war, makes the player take a pay cut, cut short his honeymoon AND still he has to come in for an interview!

If those figures are true, a 15,000 a week quid pay cut is pretty impressive (payed less than Cheyrou too!). I know he will still be on shitloads, but he is serious about playing for us. I think we will see a different Bellamy and am really looking forward to seeing him play for us. Good bit of business that.

Awesome signing in every regard. Different league to Defoe or Bent at a ridiculously low price (by today's standards).

 

£2m cheaper than Andy Johnson!

He's an annoying little frog faced shit bag, but he's our annoying little frog faced shit bag, and I'm loving it.

If he winds the opposition up half as much as he's had people wound up on here then we've got ourselves some good times coming.

Agree RIS if those figures regarding the wages are true, it is a very good sign. Just shows how much he wants to come here.

When you accept £15.000 less and take first flight home to make sure to tell Rafa how much he wants to play for us, il give the kid some credit.

 

I trust Rafa 100% on this and say welcome lad, you sure want this move. Just put your neck into it...

TBH, I've not been that thrilled by the prospect of signing this horrible little bastard (in the nicest possible way of course) but the more i think about it the more excited I am. He's got the mouth and attitude of a top player, now he just needs to keep himself on the straight and narrow and prove it.

 

If he does it'll be a great bit of business. Not overly sure he's a top player at the moment and if Rafa wants to play him wide right a bit (i'd imahgine he will) it could be troublesome. But then maybe i'm just being overly cautious and in reality we've got the striker we needed for fuck all.

If he gets more than 12 in the League I'll show my arse in John Lewis window.

 

The John Lewis window shoppers are to be spared then

 

Didn't even get close

I am disappointed that it didn't work out for him here. i thought he would be able to take the step up. My auntie wanted to see Kaizer Sauze's arse an all.
