Craig Bellamy urged to stay in top-flight


Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has urged Manchester City outcast Craig Bellamy not to turn his back on the Premier League.

Bellamy has been linked with a possible move to join hometown club Cardiff City, but Redknapp believes that the 31- year-old would be making a mistake if he headed back to South Wales.

He told reporters:"Good luck to Cardiff, but it would be a waste of an outstanding player. He should stay in the Premier League for sure.

"He's a Premier League player – a top Premier League player in my opinion.

"I think someone's going to have to end up buying him probably, unless Manchester City do decide to end up loaning him to a club like Fulham.

"I couldn't see them loaning him to someone like us."

Meanwhile, Redknapp has confirmed that Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa is training with the club, with a loan move from Spartak Moscow on the cards.

He added:"He's with us for a week or so, just to see how he is. If he's fine and he's okay, he'll join us.

"He'll give us good competition and good cover in that position."
