Plenty of rumours fly around over the course of a summer... some are just papers trying to fill column inches, some get bandied about before petering out and some even turn out to have some substance to them.
Over the weekend the big talking point for a large section of those of a Arte et Labore persuasion was the strengthening rumour that David Bentley could be on his way back to Blackburn Rovers.
It seems to fit. Bentley has been nothing short of a £15 million joke since his switch from Rovers to spurs a few years back.
His main contribution of note since his big money move have been a speculative hoof past Manuel Almunia in a North London derby and expertly smashing a football off a roof of a building into a skip for his own You Tube pleasure.
So it's not gone well for him and he needs out if he ever wants to play first team football again.
A former club is always a safe house for a wounded player and it also helps that he enjoyed the best football of his career at Ewood Park.
Rovers themselves aren't exactly badly off for right wingers with Junior Hoilett and Brett Emerton on the right flank but they are short of a bit creativity which Bent on his day can certainly provide.
£7 million is a rumoured figured or even the option of the dreaded loan move.
This rumour could get bigger or it could die by the wayside. What is noticeable though is that the rumour is out there.
Would you have him back?
