Welsh forward Craig Bellamy has completed his free transfer return to Liverpool, signing a two year contract at Anfield.

Bellamy, 32, arrives from Manchester City having completed his medical at Melwood this afternoon and agreeing personal terms with Liverpool after agreeing a severance deal with City.

Bellamy’s previous spell at Anfield was under Rafa Benitez in the 2006/07 season, when he made 27 appearances, scoring seven goals.

He left the club after an incident involving John Arne Riise, joining West Ham. He joined City two years ago but was cast aside by Roberto Mancini last summer and joined Championship side Cardiff City.

With Liverpool looking a little short of options in attack, Kenny Dalglish has opted to bring in the pacey player to provide cover and experience in the squad.

Welcome back, Craig.
