Bentley to leave after Redknapp row

Tottenham Hotspur - Header

Reports today suggest that David Bentley is set to leave the club in January after falling out with Harry Redknapp.

Bentley has struggled to live up to his £15million price-tag since joining in the summer of 2008 and has long been mooted for a transfer away from White Hart Lane.

However, his performance in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Grays Athletic has apparently infuriated his manager and caused a confrontation between the two.

The Daily Express reports, “Bentley was taking the mickey the whole game, just back-heeling or toe-punting the ball whenever it came to him.

“Harry asked Bentley what he was doing and they had a big verbal ruck, then Redknapp told him he was getting rid of him in January.”
