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?

  1. JUST HOW TOUGH IS THIS LITTLE SQUIRT BARTON TO ME HE WOULD BE A REAL BACK STABBER IN A TIME OF TROUBLE AN OUT AND OUT COWARDLY BRAINLESS TOE RAG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Sparky may well decide that a three month negotiation and £15m is not worth the money or effort to sign Bentley especially as he did not sign him for City when he had cash to burn.

    Blackburn mugged us.

    Only way to sell him is to take the loss and free up a squad place and wages for players who might actually kick a ball for us.

  3. Harry has made up his mind about Bentley, Gio, Bassong, Bhumalo, Gomes, Cudicini, Corluka, Pienaar , Jenas , Townsend and maybe even Defoe. None of them are ever get more than the occasional game. If he doesnt move on then, if they have any ambition, they should.

  4. i think bentley should move,Qpr being his best choice but i think we should keep dos santos and pienaar because to be fair they have not been given a chance under harry redknapp.
