Chairman Daniel Levy may well be looking to streamline the Tottenham squad this summer but it looks increasingly like he will have a problem trying to offload David Bentley.
Birmingham’s relegation to the championship looks set to see Bentley return to Tottenham but the club’s drop to the second tier may just have made Alex McLeish’s decision that much easier. Injury, poor form and off field problems meant that the player spent little time on the pitch at St Andrews and after a promising start to his loan spell, he barely featured in the club’s relegation scrap.
Bentley has done himself no favours at Birmingham, where he could have put himself in the shop window at least. With a return to the Tottenham first team out of the question, just who will take the player off our hands and where does a once promising career go now?
