Details unknownPrevious Club:
Alan Curbishley signed the feisty Welsh striker in the summer of 2007 from Liverpool for a club record fee of ?7.5m.
Bellamy came to East London with something of a notorious track record, having been involved in spats at former clubs Newcastle and Liverpool.
But Curbishley clearly believed that he could tame Bellamy's suspect temperament and had no problems in breaking the club's transfer record in order to land the Welsh international captain.
