Tottenham are hoping they can grab Craig Bellamy on loan from Manchester City.

The 31-year old Welshman is seeking an Eastlands exit following the arrival of World Cup-winning winger David Silva and Spurs are keen to acquire his services.

However, Harry Redknapp does not want to buy him outright as he does not want to pay big money for the injury-prone goalscorer but hopes a loan can be done as City may see it as a good opportunity to trim their squad.
