Villa In Battle For David Bentley?

Villa In Battle For David Bentley?

England and Blackburn midfielder David Bentley has a host of clubs including Aston Villa, Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool all apparently after his services following his announcement that he wants to leave Ewood Park.

The 23-year-old told Sky Sports News: 'I have made it clear to the club what I want to do. The situation is I want to move on. I want to be playing Champions League football, or in Europe. I want a new challenge. I believe I have done as much as I can at the club and want to push on somewhere else.' Adding, 'I owe them so much and I hope I’ve repaid them with the way I’ve played. I’ve been here for three years and I love the club but I feel like I’ve done everything I can. I want to move on and try to push up the ladder.'

Would be good to see us in the mix for him, one in one out still won't build the squad though! I can't see Liverpool having the funds, Manchester City certainly do so it would all depend on how well Bentley got on with his former Blackburn boss Mark Hughes. Spurs or Villa? Tough one, both have the money, both are ambitious, does the lad want to be further up north or does he fancy a return to the capital? Who knows....!

Liverpool won't be able to afford him. We have a real chance of nailing him. I hope MON wants him.

There's every chance MON is in for him; young and british. But worth 15mil? From what i've seen him he's not that outstanding.
