Toshack: Liverpool won’t sell Bellamy

He told BBC Sport: “It would be very unusual for something like that to happen so quickly. I would be very surprised if that was the case.

“I think at a club like Liverpool it takes time to settle. Anfield is not like anywhere else and they have had a number of new players in there trying to settle in with the likes of Jermaine Pennant, Dirk Kuyt, Bellamy and Mark Gonzalez.

“It obviously takes a bit of time but certainly the game against Wigan was refreshing because he played that game the way that he has played the last three games for Wales.”
