Fulham boss Mark Hughes keen to sign Craig Bellamy
Dembele set for Fulham move - Hughes
Fulham manager Mark Hughes says he is interested in signing Manchester City's out-of-favour striker Craig Bellamy.
"Yes, I'd be interested in signing Craig," said Hughes. "He's one of the top players in the Premier League."
City boss Roberto Mancini confirmed on Friday Bellamy would not make their 25-man Premier League squad and that the 31-year-old should find a new club.
Hughes has signed Bellamy twice before, at Blackburn and City, and was also his manager when in charge of Wales.
Speaking before Mancini confirmed Bellamy would not make City's Premier League squad, Hughes added: "If he comes on the market, and if we're in the position where we can conclude a deal for Craig Bellamy, then yes we would be very interested.
"It seems that Manchester City won't be using Craig at Premier League level, so from his point of view it is very important that he makes the right decision for his career.
"A wrong decision at this point in time could hurt him, so I wish him well in what decision he takes."
