Cardiff City’s veteran striker Craig Bellamy has admitted his regret at never signing for Tottenham Hotspur, the Mail Online understands.
The 34 year old, who has played for eight different teams in English competition, has said that he had two chances to move to White Hart Lane in the last six years.
Bellamy began his career with Norwich City in the mid-nineties, before moving on to Coventry City after five years at Carrow Road.
Spells with Newcastle United, Celtic (loan), Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool West Ham United, and Manchester City followed, while he enjoyed a loan spell with the Bluebirds before returning to Anfield in 2011.
He then permanently joined his hometown club last August, and has since scored four times in thirty-nine league appearances.
The striker called time on his international career having been capped seventy-eight times, following Wales failure to qualify for next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
