Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Bentley's reluctance to sign the contract extension that the club would like him to has made him available, or so the media would have you believe!!!
Bentley still has plenty of time on his Rovers contract, and the club have made it perfectly clear that they are not looking to sell the England International, nor do they want to but once again this countries media seem to think that just because he has spoken of his desire to play Champions League football (one day!) and play at the very highest level that he wants to move on this Summer. Even if he did then some of the teams that are supposedly interested in him wont exactly offer him what he is supposed to be craving will they!
Bentley is quoted on Sky Sports as saying: "I watched the Champions League Final and of course that's the sort of match I want to play in. Every player when they start their career wants to reach the top of their game and I haven't done that yet.
"I wouldn't say I'm impatient - but I'm hungry for success.
"I don't look at myself as a full international. I haven't played in a big tournament, haven't played in the Champions League, so I've still got it all to do at the moment.
"That's what I'm trying to do. I've still got to work hard, get better as a player and hopefully one day I'll be in the big games."
That is not exactly him saying he wants to leave it is!!!
Until Bentley openly comes out and says he wants to leave Ewood Park, Mark Hughes, John Williams, every one connected to the club and all the fans shouldn't fear that he will. If/when that becomes the case (if it did) he might be wise to remember that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, he knows this first hand and other that have thought this could also remind him of this fact.
