David Bentley has one year left on his current Blackburn deal and he is looking to move away from Ewood Park in order to increase his chances with the national team, according to The Guardian. While none of the Champions League clubs in England are interested in Bentley, it is thought that Aston Villa and Tottenham are doing their best to buy the player.
In fact, Blackburn Rovers’ chairman, John Williams revealed that the club has rejected two offers for David Bentley, according to The Guardian. It is not clear where those two offers came from or how much they were worth, but both of them have come short of the club’s evaluation of Bentley.
The England winger is thought to be valued at around Ã‚Â£17 million by his club, who are apparently willing to settle for not a penny less. Although other reports suggest that they would consider a part-exchange deal with Tottenham involving goalkeeper Paul Robinson whom they see as a potential replacement for former goalkeeper Brad Fridel.
