EPL Transfer News: The Top 15 Players to Benefit Themselves in the Window

Craig Bellamy was the forgotten man at Manchester City

The 2011 transfer window is finally closed and a number of EPL players made moves that will hopefully help their new teams, but will greatly benefit their own careers.

One such player is the fiery Craig Bellamy, who signed a two-year contract to return to Liverpool under manager Kenny Dalglish. The move is a great chance for Bellamy to again ply his trade in the Premier League after falling down the pecking order at Manchester City.

Bellamy had joined City in January 2009 under then manager Mark Hughes and enjoyed initial success with the club.  When Roberto Mancini was brought in, Bellamy soon saw less and less playing time.

Last season, Bellamy played in the Championship League joining his hometown side, Cardiff City, on a season-long loan. 

This summer, Mancini made it pretty clear to Bellamy that he was expendable, and was allowed to leave the club on a free transfer to sign with Liverpool.

It's a second go-round for Bellamy with Liverpool after playing for the club in 2007. It's also a chance for Bellamy to resurrect his top-flight career.
