Midfielder set for another temporary deal.
Tottenham midfielder David Bentley is set to re-join Blackburn Rovers on loan, according to Daily Mirror journalist John Cross.
The 28-year-old has not made an appearance for Spurs since 2010 and has spent the last two-and-a-half years on loan at various clubs.
The former Arsenal trainee shot to prominence during a two-year spell with Rovers, with a number of fine displays prompting Spurs to spend £16.5m on him in 2008.
The right winger also earned England recognition but his career has been in steady decline since moving to North London and he spent the first half of this season on loan at FC Rostov in Russia.
Bentley is now back at White Hart Lane but cannot get near the Tottenham first-team, despite the club sending back-up wingers Andros Townsend and Iago Falque on loan last month.
Blackburn boss Michael Appleton has admitted he is keen to re-sign the struggling star.
“David is a wide player and we have been talking about wide players. He is definitely on the list and in an ideal world I would like to bring two wide players in,” Appleton is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“So whether he is one of the two, let’s see what happens. He has a great history with the club and a lot of quality.”
