Report: Craig Bellamy frontrunner for vacant Oxford United job

Oxford United are in talks with Craig Bellamy about becoming their new manager, according to reports.

Craig Bellamy has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner to become the next head coach of Oxford United.

The former Wales and Liverpool forward currently works for Cardiff City as their player development manager.

Oxford, meanwhile, sit just five points clear of the League One relegation zone and are without a manager since sacking Pep Clotet last month.

According to The Telegraph, Bellamy has been selected by the U's board after a thorough recruitment search over the past few weeks.

"We want to facilitate Craig's opportunities to get experience," Cardiff chief executive Ken Choo is quoted by the newspaper as saying. "This could be a good move for his career."

The 38-year-old was interviewed for the Wales job before his ex-teammate Ryan Giggs was appointed in January.
