    NEWS ---> David Bentley has joined Blackburn Rovers on loan until the end of the season #THFC # #COYS


    Hope he does well there - previous UK loans have not gone well due to injury etc.

    He'll be back though :cry:


    I hope he does well enough to earn himself a move to a club who will be willing to match his exorbitant wage demands.

    God, I'm so tired of Bentley. Such a waste (of once-talent and money).

    He didn't really do much, but Arsenal had all the ball.

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/...is-not-thinking-about-his-future-at-Tottenham

    Most interesting sentance perhaps is :

    'Bentley is out of contract at Tottenham in the summer and it seems unlikely he will be offered a new deal'.

    and his quote ' "I'm out of contract with Tottenham in the summer' (Edit - later addition to text)

    When acquired the OS said he had a contract of up to 6 years (which would have meant June 2014), so good to know it can run out in June 2013 or be extended by a year.

    Given his lack of marketability in the past, probablyu let the contract wind down.

    God, that would be fantastic news. Him, Jenas, Gomes and maybe Huddlestone off the books next year would represent a lot of funds available for new players and their wages.

    I realize that. It was more so the hopeful certainty that Him, Bentley and Gomes will be off the books and hopefully/maybe Huddlestone as well.

    Huddlestone and Gomes contracts go on to 2015 and 2014, so we would need to sell them to get wages off our books.

    Hope Gomes continues to impress at Hoffenheim and we get a fee for him, and maybe Huddlestione to a lower PL club.
