Rovers Prepare To Spend The Bentley Money!!!

Rovers Prepare To Spend The Bentley Money!!!

The Official Blackburn Rovers website confirmed last on Wednesday Evening that an agreement had been reached with Tottenham Hotspur for the signing of David Bentley. His move to Tottenham will be officially announced today, so after giving Arsenal their cut the spending should begin!!!

The name that is understood to be at the top of Paul Ince's wanted list is Liverpool's right-winger Jermaine Pennant, who has disappointed on the whole at Anfield following a big money transfer from Birmingham City. Ince could bring Pennant to Ewood Park for around £6 million, but could face competition with Portsmouth understood to be preparing an offer as well.

Other names heavily in the frame (which as we know please sasman!!!) are Australian Internationals Vince Grella and Mark Bresciano. However, it is 28-year-old Grella that is attracting most interest with a firm offer to rival that of Fulham likely to come along now that Incey has the money from the departure of Bentley. Milton Keynes Don's skipper Keith Andrews continues to see his name mooted with a move to Ewood but Rovers keep denying an interest in the midfielder.

I'm not really a fan of Pennants but if we could sign him and Grella with the money we got from Bents after giving Arsenal what we owe them (and maybe even Bresciano as well, however, I think all three with this money would be unlikely?!?!) I would be pretty happy.

Invest it wisely - I have the feeling this could be a bumpy season for you lot!

How much of the transfer fee so Arsenal get? I heard it was in the region of £7 million.

I heard the same amount DP - Merlin don't worry yourself... I think there will be more bumps for Chelsea than us...

The only problem with signing Pennant, if Pompey are also in for him, will be Liverpool holding out for a high price... something that I don't think he's worth. I think anything over £4.5 million will be expensive... but as we have a large sum now, Liverpool will know we can afford it

Not sure if we want Pennant at Pompey. I also heard the £7m to Arsenal story. That's a massive sell on clause.

I like Pennant and he has pace which is something that we lack. But we shouldnt be overspending on him. Grella and Bresciano are good and should be considered... especially with Sas on here. He would be delighted!!!

It must have been a 40%-45% sell on clause, which is probably why he was so cheap in the first instance! I think anything over £5 million for Pennant is expensive.

Firstly, you have no idea how happy I am to have Bentley at Spurs, I rate him very highly... and I don't think we've been ripped off over the fee either. What are your thoughts on Bentley at Blackburn?
