Celtic are determined to win the race for Manchester City attacker Craig Bellamy.

The Daily Mail says Celtic will this week ask Manchester City to name their price for Welsh firebrand striker Bellamy.

Parkhead chief executive Peter Lawwell is awaiting the return from holiday of key management figures at the FA Cup holders, while Bellamy himself is due to return from a charity trip to Sierra Leone.

The Scottish Cup winners want a 12-month loan deal similar to that struck with Newcastle United for Bellamy in 2005. The striker has a year remaining on his existing deal and Sunderland, West Ham United and Cardiff City are also in the running for his signature.
