David Bentley is set for a Newcastle move to make room for the potential arrival of David Beckham at White Hart Lane.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is a big fan of Bentley, 26, and believes his crossing ability would be a perfect foil for striker Andy Carroll.
Spurs boss Harry will not stand in Bentley’s way as he tries to free up squad places, with Niko Kranjcar and Robbie Keane also available.
The club are willing to take a substantial loss on the £15million they paid Blackburn for Bentley in 2006. The winger has made only 32 Premier League starts in four seasons and was not included in the 18 for yesterday’s game against Fulham. (Daily Mail)
It Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley going to put his money where his to oft used mouth is? Apparently so, at least that is what this source believes. David Bentley is a decent player who hasn’t managed to convince Harry Redknapp of his ability and anyone who believes the former Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers man has nothing to offer should remember that last term when he was called upon to take Aaron Lennon’s place he did a very good job indeed.
Other sources believe that Robbie Keane is also on his way to St James’ Park and that the pair will set the St James’ Park side back around £18m. Newcastle United are firmly ensconced in the mid table area of the table but the second half of the season could see them scaling new heights or being involved in a relegation dog fight, such is the tightness of the division.
Right now the Magpies are just three points from the relegation zone and eight points from the top six and Alan Pardew’s has games in hand over most sides above them to boot. Keane and Bentley would offer Newcastle United experienced attacking options and that could be just what the club needs in order to boost the second half of the campaign.
