Bentley leaves Tottenham on loan
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder David Bentley has left the club on loan, moving to Russia Premier League side FC Rostov in a deal to last until January, Yahoo Sports has reported.
Bentley moved to White Hart Lane in 2008, with the London club paying Blackburn Rovers £15m for the former Arsenal winger. But in that time Bentley has made fewer than 50 appearances for the club, spending time on loan at Birmingham City, who were then in the Premier League, and West Ham United in the Championship. Bentley suffered a knee injury while with the Hammers that ruled him out for a lengthy period of time.
The 28-year-old began his career with Arsenal but struggled to break into the first team on a regular basis, making just a handful of appearances. Bentley also spent time on loan at Norwich City before a temporary spell at Blackburn proved successful and eventually became permanent. Bentley in total spent three years at Ewood Park before joining Tottenham, and has seven England caps to his name.
