Well there will be rejoicing in the streets of Manchester Tonight. The 29 year old Welsh striker Craig Bellamy has signed a 4 1/2 year contract to join City as the second signing this January.
I'm not entirely sure what we have planned for Bellamy, is this it for strikers now? Where are we going to play him. Surely 15 million is too much for a backup.
He has a poor injury record, niggling hamstring problems, but we can get as much out of his as possible. He's fast, athletic and trains hard according to Hughes, so it's right down Hughes street, buying a player he is very familiar with.
I will be much happier when De Jong signs, not impressed with today's business but i will have to grit my teeth and accept that he's now our problem.
