According to the Daily Mail, amongst other reports, Blackburn would sell their winger David Bentley but only for a top price.
Rovers club chairman John Williams said of the 23-year-old England midfielder:
'We have received two bids but neither have come anywhere close to our valuation which is based in line with how we see the market. We don't want to lose David but if we do get a bid that meets our valuation then ultimately it comes down to a football decision by Paul. David is one year into a four-year contract but he told us when Mark Hughes was here that he wanted a move so this doesn't come as a shock to us.'
It has been confirmed that Villa made a bid and is thought that Spurs are the other team interested. It has also been rumoured that Bentley is only interested in a London move, so it might not matter what we bid!
Whilst on the subject, our last poll, suggested by John.Carews.Crew, asked:
Which winger would you like to see at Villa Park?
Chelsea's Shaun Wright-Phillips came out top with 34%
David Bentley was next up with 21% closely followed by the option to give Maloney a chance, at 18%
That left 14% wanting Newcastle midfielder James Milner, 10% wanting our very own Wayne Routledge a go and just 3% for Spurs winger Aaron Lennon. Love votes for him possibly to do with the fact he shaves his eyebrow in that silly way... or is that just me?!
