Former Premier League star hails Kovacic.

Bellamy: I love Kovacic as a player.

Craig Bellamy has heaped praise on Mateo Kovacic and has backed the Croatian to be a success in the Premier League.

The former Liverpool and Manchester City forward said he 'loves' Kovacic - who is set to join Chelsea on a season-long loan from Real Madrid as part of the deal taking Thibaut Courtois to the Bernabeu.

"I played against him, I think he was about 17 then and it was a ‘whose this?’ moment, he was that good," Bellamy said on Sky Sports News.

"I’m actually really excited to see him in the Premier League, I’ve watched him a lot. He hasn’t got the game time at Real Madrid, I love him as a player and think he’s a really good signing."
