Craig Bellamy could soon return to Cardiff after Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed talks are underway regarding the striker's transfer.

The Wales international was on loan at the Millennium Stadium during the 2010/11 season, when he netted 11 goals before making a return to Anfield a year ago.

The Bluebirds are keen to secure the 33-year-old's services on a permanent basis, although the Reds have been trying to hold onto Bellamy despite his intentions to return to South Wales.

The journeyman has cited personal reasons for his desire to leave the Merseyside giants, who have opened the door to make his departure as smooth as possible by allowing him to leave for free.

Bellamy is remaining mum on the matter, saying he will take the process 'day by day' as a switch to Malky Mackay's side now seems imminent.

Rodgers told Sky Sports: "We have been in talks with him and Cardiff.

"I had a really good meeting with Craig before I moved up here. He is a big Liverpool supporter but I also understand his thinking.

"He is 33 and has travelled around the country all his life, so there are compassionate reasons.

"We will look at it but we will wish him all the best and move forward."
