Bentley Keen on Villa Loan

David Bentley is keen to escape from a pretty miserable tenure at Tottenham after chances have become more and more limited under Harry Redknapp this term. Spurs splashed out a hefty £15m for the winger, who despite being out of favour, has impressed when played and was hotly tipped for an England call-up after a fantastic few seasons at Blackburn after starting out Arsenal. Bentley returned to haunt his former employers with a memorable goal against the Gunners for arch rivals Tottenham, the highlight of his seasons with the club. Due to the sizable amount spent on the player, now 26, Redknapp will be keen to recoup a reasonable chunk of the £15m spent but the likelihood becomes less likely with the more time the midfielder stays on the bench. For that reason a loan move has been touted with former club Blackburn interested along with his old manager Mark Hughes, at Fulham. Bentley is believed to be keen on a reunion with the boss whom he flourished under and a short move across London may be on the cards. Despite this Villa have been suggested as long-term admirers of Bentley who is also reportedly keen on a switch to the Midlands club. Does the club need another winger? Bentley can play in a more central role but is undoubtedly more useful as a wide-man. With Downing top scorer and Albrighton being Villa’s best player this season would the move be worthwhile?
