Blackburn look to bring in Bentley on loan.
Blackburn look set to offer David Bentley a return to Ewood Park according to The Daily Mail.
The former Arsenal midifielder has struggled with form and injuries since moving to White Hart Lane and has failed to make a single league appearance under new boss Andre Villas Boas, despite featuring more prominently in pre-season.
Bentley has been playing this season out on loan at Russian Premier League side FK Rostov. He impressed with his initial performances before suffering an ankle injury that has since restricted his playing time.
The former England midfielder is now looking for a return to English football, and Blackburn may be set to offer him the chance to revive their flagging season in the Championship.
Blackburn have been a club in disarray this season, recently appointing their fifth manager of the season already when they confirmed the signing of Blackpool’s Michael Appleton.
They currently sit in 13th place in the Championship table, seven points off Watford in the playoff places and an immediate return to the Premier League looking unlikely.
Bentley enjoyed some his best years at Ewood Park, being voted their Player of the Year in 2007 before helping them to an eighth-placed finish in 2008. Fortunes for both player and club have dropped since those lofty days.
