Bentley set for move abroad after release by Spurs

Former Tottenham Hotspur winger David Bentley is set to move abroad, the Daily Mail, with no English clubs currently prepared to offer him a contract after he left White Hart Lane earlier this summer.

Bentley was released by Spurs at the expiry of his contract this summer, after a very unsuccessful five years with the club. He scored five goals in 62 appearances, and over the course of that time was loaned out to West Ham United and Birmingham City.

He joined Spurs in the summer of 2008 from Blackburn Rovers for £16m, where he had consistenty impressed, and was a contender to play on the right for England, earning seven caps. His time at Spurs was disappointing in comparison, however.

Dutch club Utrecht appear to be his most likely suitors, although Espanyol are also interested. Utrecht finished fifth in the Dutch Eredivisie last season, while Javier Aguirre’s side came 13th in Spain last season, and Bentley would hope that a move to either team would help revive his career.
