Sky Sports sources understand that Queens Park Rangers are closing on the signing of Shaun Wright-Phillips.
A host of clubs have been looking at the England international, who is only on the fringes of the first-team squad at the Etihad Stadium.
Wright-Phillips had held talks with a number of clubs and Bolton had seemed favourites to land his signature.
But QPR have been looking to finalise a permanent deal for the 29-year-old and they appear to have won the race.
The Hoops have been busy in the market following Tony Fernandes' recent takeover and manager Neil Warnock has now turned his attention to bolstering his attacking options, targetting the out-of-favour City duo.
Bellamy was linked with a shock return to Liverpool last week, while Cardiff were also interested having taken the 32-year-old striker on loan last season, but the Wales international could now be set for a loan move to Loftus Road.
