Former Liverpool favourite could be on his way back to the Premiership next season

Cardiff City have already started plotting how to celebrate their first season in the Barclays Premier League, and are hoping to reunite Craig Bellamy with his former Liverpool strike partner Dirk Kuyt, by bringing the former Anfield back to England.

Kuyt, who joined Europa League semi-finalists Fenerbahce last summer for a fee believed to be just £1 million will cost the Bluebirds even less, making him an attractive prospect.

Kuyt brings with him years of top flight Premier League experience, a fantastic work rate, and the ability to play both in a central striking role and on the right wing.

Nearly 33, Kuyt may not be quite the threat he was a decade ago, but would still be a fantastic addition to the Cardiff City squad, whose first objective will clearly be Premier League survival.

Cardiff City are believed to have a rather generous transfer budget of £25 million, and the club are also hoping to bring former Swansea star and current Manchester City outcast Scott Sinclair back to Wales. The youngster’s career is heading in the wrong direction after his summer move to Eastlands, and he could accept the opportunity to play for a club where regular first team football is on offer.
