Tottenham striker Peter Crouch expects Craig Bellamy to return to the Premier League next season.

The Manchester City attacker is currently on-loan at Cardiff.

Crouch said: "Craig is a character and, from my time at Liverpool, I can only speak highly of him.

"He is a good lad and the only reason he is how he is on the pitch is because he wants to win and he is a winner.

"I can't see him playing in the Championship for too long. He is too good a player for that."
