The 32-year-old spent last season on loan at npower Championship side Cardiff after a rift with City boss Roberto Mancini saw him excluded from the first-team squad.
City have been desperate to offload Bellamy but with a year left on his contract there were financial issues to sort out before Liverpool could complete a deal
As posted earlier, City and Bellamy would have had to come to an agreement in relation to the outstanding year on Bellamy's contract in order to facilitate the deal.
