Bentley Admits He Is Villa Bound

Bentley Admits He Is Villa Bound

The Sun have a report by Pat Sheehan. I'd love to leave the article there, leave you all guessing!

Silly moment over... the report has quotes from Spurs and England midfielder David Bentley admitting that he is in talks with Villa.

At least, a rumour that is true!

The 24-year-old, who moved from Blackburn Rovers to Spurs last summer after Villa also bid, told the Sun:

'I’m in talks with Villa at the moment. I really don’t want to say much more. But we’ll see what happens. I’m hopeful of sorting it out as soon as possible.'

Well, if he is in talks with them, he'll have to say a bit more than that surely?

Apparently Villa might be able to get him for around £7million meaning Spurs take a loss of around £9million on their £16million purchase (yes, I know you can do the maths but I thought I'd help out).

The Sun go on to claim the players agent has been in talks for a few weeks and they quote from a source saying it will all be settled by July 1.

Lots of talk flying around the net that Spurs are trying to land Young as part of the deal. Surely, this HAS to be complete trash. My brothers a Spurs fan and I spent pretty much the whole of last season winding him up about how much better Young is than Bentley and reminding him on each players cost. Gutted, devasted, wounded, are just some words that would scratch the surface on how I'd feel if this were to be true.

Its funny that we would be saving money on someone we could of got a year earlier. Usually we end up paying alot more!! Top player on this day but he has got a big gob on him, keeping him in line might be O'Neill's biggest challenge yet.
