Celtic ready to make £5m bid for Bellamy

The Hammers are struggling with cash problems and could be forced to sell Bellamy in order to cut their costs.

A Celtic source revealed: “Gordon is desperate to land him. He isn’t concerned by his reputation, having handled the younger version and others like Noel Whelan.

“Bellers was a huge hit when he was on loan up here and, at around £5m, the signing would be good business.”
