Club in talks for Bentley

Sky Sports News are reporting that we are in talks with Tottenham over a deal for David Bentley.

There is no mention as to whether Martin Petrov may be included in the deal, but regardless, whilst Mark Hughes has a succesful record in the transfer market of late this is one that I don't see as being a good move.

Bentley had success at Blackburn but has lost his way at Tottenham, falling out of the England squad in the process and it is difficult to see quite where he would fit into our starting line-up either on the right-hand side or even in the centre.

Maybe like Craig Bellamy before him, Hughes sees a value that most of us do not immediately see.

More to come on this no doubt throughout today.


The Telegraph is reporting that Petrov will be included in a player plus cash swap deal.
