Alex McLeish has urged David Bentley to reinvigorate his career at Birmingham.
Blues boss McLeish told www.bcfc.com: “We’re delighted to have David’s services. He is a classy footballer and will enhance the quality of the squad.
“He is a natural footballer capable of top delivery at set-pieces. With the likes of him, (Alexander) Hleb and (Sebastian) Larsson – who has had a great season consistency-wise – we have creative players. Bentley can provide more competition.
“He has had his moments at Spurs but there is fierce competition for places there.
“They have a glut of superstars. With the introduction of people like (Rafael) van der Vaart, players of that ilk, and the rise of (Aaron) Lennon, it has become very difficult for him. The quality is amazing and maybe he can get his career back on track here.”
