Juande Ramos badly wants this Blackburn star, and it appears that the England man has reached boiling point as his frustration over a move continues!
David Bentley pulled out of Blackburn’s training camp in Germany yesterday – as his frustration over a big-money move to Tottenham reached breaking point.
The transfer-seeking England star is waiting for Rovers to agree a fee with Spurs, who have seen their initial £16.2million offer rejected.
Bentley dropped out of last night’s 3-1 friendly loss to Hoffenheim with a calf injury, the second time he has missed a game after not playing in Paul Ince’s debut match at Macclesfield.
The unsettled winger is at loggerheads with the club, who have taken a hard-line decision to stick by their £17m valuation.

Surely if the difference in opinion is only £800k, then a deal is within reach, at least that is what this source is suggesting. Personally I think the asking price for the former Arsenal man is hugely inflated but if Tottenham badly want the creative midfielder, then I guess it really does seem to be when and not if. Maybe this ‘injury’ will convince the north London club to drop their interest in the troublesome target and look elsewhere? Do Spurs fans want their club to bid so frantically for Bentley, or would this constitute a waste of money?
