New Cardiff boss yet to decide over bringing Man City's Bellamy back

New Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay has yet to decide if he will try to bring Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy back to his home-town club. Bellamy spent last season on loan at Cardiff from Manchester City and scored 11 goals as the Welsh side missed out on promotion from the Championship.

The 31-year-old is still under contract back at Eastlands and has been linked with a return to the Cardiff City Stadium and Mackay is not ruling out an attempt to re-sign the Wales international.

"Craig is a player I have kept in touch with as we played together at Norwich, so he is someone I know very well," said Mackay.

"He did well for this football club last year and we all know he is someone affected by Cardiff City - he is a local boy.

"He is someone who, in this division, is an X-factor player.

"But Craig is contracted to Manchester City so it would be wrong of me to talk too much about him."

Bluebirds chief executive Gethin Jenkins added: "When the time is right - Craig is away at the minute - then we will sit down like we did last year and have the appropriate conversation with Craig and City."
