Bellamy regrets not joining Spurs

Cardiff City striker Craig Bellamy has revealed that he regrets not joining Tottenham.

Bellamy has been offered the chance to join the North Londoners on several occasions.

"I think the first time (they came in for me) was when I was 19 with George Graham, then with Martin Jol in 2007 and again with Harry Redknapp in 2008-09," he told the Evening Standard.

"It's always been close, really close to the point I got called out of my Liverpool medical to say the papers were ready for me to sign for Spurs. But I thought "well, I'm here now". Football's crazy like that but I like White Hart Lane and Spurs' style of football.

"Of all the clubs I didn't go to that I could regret, that'd be the one."
