Dragons' $6m plan to poach Bellamy

St George-Illawarra are reportedly willing to splash $6m on Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy to lure him to the Dragons for the 2013 season.

According to a report in the The Sunday Telegraph the club has been in negotiations with Bellamy's management since mid-November and has offered him more money than former coach Wayne Bennett earned in three years.

Bellamy revealed there was a 50-50 chance that he would leave Melbourne.

He said he was deciding between Storm and one other option, which he would not name because that "wouldn’t be fair to the club or the coach".

"The important thing is, I don't want this dragging on and on," Bellamy told the newspaper.

"The decision needs to be made in January or certainly before we go to England for the World Club Challenge."

He has already knocked back an offer from the New Zealand Warriors and said it would be difficult to leave Storm stars such as Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk.

"That's part of the decision I have to make," he said.

"We're all very close."
