Manchester City have failed in their latest attempts to bring West Ham pair Craig Bellamy and Scott Parker to Eastlands.

The Independent claim that City made an improved combined bid of £20 million for Welsh international striker Bellamy and midfielder Parker and this was turned down by the Hammers.

"It's documented that we made an enquiry about Bellamy as well (as Parker). We made a double bid and that was rejected - we haven't gone back to the table but we may well do," Mark Hughes confirmed to BBC Sport.
