Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy is waiting on Brendan Rodgers before deciding his future, according to the Echo, with the star unsure over whether he will receive maximum game time for the Reds next season.

Reports have been widely speculating that Bellamy is currently fielding interest from Cardiff, where the 32 year old spent a season on loan from Manchester City in 2010-2011.

And after receiving just 18 starts for Liverpool last season, Bellamy is reportedly considering whether he will be a priority pick for Brendan Rodgers next season.

Kenny Dalglish was heralded for signing the stalwart at the beginning of last season, and his experience was a big help to a side who otherwise struggled in front of the net, and hit the woodwork more than any other Premier League club.

Bellamy himself admitted that it was a 'strange season' for Liverpool, as the side enjoyed Cup success but failed to get close to Champions League qualification in the league table.

Craig Bellamy is considering his future with Liverpool.

After Dalglish was sacked by Reds' owners PSG, Brendan Rodgers made the move from Swansea, and despite the manager having no Champions League experience, he has been trusted with the tough task of taking the side back into the top four.

Bellamy said yesterday that he saw the new gaffer as being a perfect fit for the club, but whether Rodgers believes that the star is perfect for an up-front position at Anfield remains to be seen.

The local paper claims that Liverpool haven't yet had contact with Cardiff over a possible move, and the club are reportedly surprised that Bellamy has been linked with a deal with the Wales outfit.

Bellamy isn't the only player from Merseyside with an unsure future ahead, with Luis Suarez still being linked to a possible exit, and the club keeping quiet about any possible targets after spending a mammoth £100 million+ over the last 18 months.

Cardiff are said to be chasing Bellamy hard, with the club desperate to placate fans after changing the team's shirt from blue to red under their Malaysian owners.

And with the Wales international harbouring a close relationship with the town, he could be tempted if Liverpool can't offer the first team football he craves.
