At the time of the FA Cup semi final, it looked as if David Bentley might at least get to make up the numbers on the Spurs bench at least but in the end it was another completely wasted season for the midfielder.
The option of another loan deal for next season is always there but there will be few Spurs fans who won’t be hoping that if a move does take place, it’s a permanent one.
Step forward Mark Hughes (maybe), Bentley’s former boss at Blackburn Rovers who is rumoured to be looking at taking the player to Loftus Road. The deal would surely suit Bentley as he would stay in London and play for a manager he knows and respects.
“Sparky made David a great player, and he was happiest at Blackburn when the two were there together,” a ‘source’ said.
Rumours persist meanwhile that Joey Barton will be omitted from QPR’s 25 man squad and while this isn’t a like for like replacement by any means, there is a midfield vacancy there if these stories are true.
At this point in the player’s career, a permanent transfer seems best for all concerned and can Loftus Road be his next destination?
