Newcastle favourites to get Bentley

Sky Sports News are reporting that Newcastle United are trying to beat Aston Villa, West Ham, Fulham and Blackburn to the signature of David Bentley.

The 26 year old, who current manager Harry Redknapp accused of “always getting injured on Friday morning” before games has had a less than successful tenure at White Hart Lane and has seen his first team opportunities diminish in recent months.

He has effectively been told the club won’t stand in his way but has to leave on a permanent basis. It is believed that Bentley would prefer to stay South, but having found the majority of his success at Blackburn it is believed he is open to returning north to re-ignite his career.

There haven’t been any confirmed bids as of yet and it isn’t entirely certain that a club is willing to meet Spurs or Bentley’s demands but it is apparent that neither party are adverse to Bentley’s leaving the club.
