It’s Liverpool or Spurs, as £12m midfield maestro weighs up his options

The race is on for Blackburn’s assist making, cross curling, free kick hitting former Arsenal man David Bentley. It seems a certainty that his Ewood Park days are on the wane and now apparently it’s a two horse race to clinch the England international.

It’s almost as though Bentley is beginning to slowly burn his bridges at Blackburn, a series of quotes, either taken out of context or not, seem to suggest that the ambitious (possibly too ambitious, if there is such a thing) talent really will be on his way in the summer in search of what he might perceive as a ‘bigger’ club. The general consensus from message boards and fans I have met suggests that Rovers fans have had enough of Bentley are more than happy to wisely invest the fee they receive for the 23 year old.
