WEST Ham have denied that Craig Bellamy will follow Anton Ferdinand out of Upton Park this week despite speculation linking the striker with a move to Manchester City.

City were reported to be interested in Bellamy as they look to add further signings before the transfer window closes next week, but Hammers chief executive Scott Duxbury insists the 29-year-old will remain at the club.

"West Ham United have absolutely no intention of selling Craig Bellamy," Duxbury told the club's website.

"He is under contract and is committed to the club. Craig remains a very important part of our plans for the future."

Despite losing the battle over Ferdinand's future at the club, Hammers manager Alan Curbishley was also adamant that Bellamy would not be allowed to leave.

He revealed that the £7.5million signing resumed full training this week following a hamstring injury and could make a shock return to action against former club Blackburn on Saturday.

He said: "It's nonsense. I don't think anybody else will be going. Craig looked sharp in pre-season and gives us something extra with his pace.

"He is in full training so it's more realistic he'll be ready on Saturday.
