Blackburn Rovers winger David Bentley is hinting at an Ewood exit, well according to the media on Sunday anyway!!!
For SEVERAL months Rovers have been trying to tie Bentley down to a long-term contract, but so far these talks have staled and nothing has been signed despite Bents expressing his desire to stay, but in more recent times adding what could be seen as thinly veiled comments that perhaps suggest he is weighing up his options.
The England International has been heavily linked with a big money move to Newcastle United in the summer, with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Athletico Bilbao all understood to be monitoring his Ewood situation, and if European football is not achieved next season (something which is a danger) the media suggestion is that Bents is suggesting that he could see a future away from Ewood this summer?!?!
Bentley told The Daily Star Sunday: "I owe so much to Blackburn
"They have given me a platform - financially and to play every week.
"My contract is getting negotiated at the minute, but you never know what is round the corner.
"We need to be in Europe but we are probably not going to make it - which is disappointing from a personal point of view."
Is this Bents suggesting he is looking at his options, or is it the media just viewing these comments (as thinly veiled as it could appear?) as him hinting towards a summer exit?!?! I personally think he would be better off staying here, but a season without European football COULD be something that he feels his quality can't do without??? (if so that rules out Newcastle at least!)
