Bentley may return to Spurs
Spurs winger David Bentley has not ruled out returning to Spurs and playing for the club after joining FC Rostov on loan.
The Tottenham midfielder agreed a temporary switch to Russia until Christmas just before the close of the transfer window, and he is now anxious to get his career back on track. The former Arsenal and Blackburn star says his first target with Rostov is to get some games under his belt after missing most of last season due to the knee injury he picked up during a loan stint on loan at West Ham, which required surgery. Bentley had hoped to get a second chance to make an impression at White Hart Lane following the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas in the summer, but it soon become clear that the 28-year-old wasn't in the manager's plans. "I'm as fit as I can be as far as not playing, but that's what I'm looking to do - get match fit while I'm over there and get in the full flow of playing again," he said. "You never know in football. We're treating it as obviously contracted for a short term. But long term we'll see what happens. "I'm going there to hopefully enjoy my football. If things work out then we'll see what happens from there."
