Craig Bellamy has revealed he is delighted to be linking up with his former Blackburn coach Mark Hughes again. The Welshman completed a move from West Ham to Man City yesterday.

Bellamy said: "It was a big factor, because they are people that I have worked with since I was 18," Bellamy told the club's official website.

"They know me better than anybody-else in the football game, and they are people I completely trust in.

"They have progressed me massively, and I owe them a lot. The added bonus is that it's Manchester City and the way it is going at the moment with possibly one or two more players coming in over the top of me.

"I'm fortunate that this opportunity has come along, and I am grateful. I feel I am at my peak and I hope over the next few years to perform really well here."
