David Bentley is NOT FOR SALE!

David Bentley is NOT FOR SALE!

Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams has moved quick to stop the suggestion that David Bentley could be sold by slapping a NOT FOR SALE sign in the shop window.

Bentley is being linked with a move to Newcastle United, with their new manager Kevin Keegan understood to be an admirer of his and keen to add him to his list of possible new signings, but Williams is aiming to put out this fire by putting it out early before is burns wildly out of control with the transfer window approaching its final week. He also reiterated the thoughts that talks on a new contract are going well, and should continue soon.

Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Our position is clear, David Bentley is not for sale. We've not heard anything for Newcastle or anyone else and we wouldn't welcome any interest.

"We stated recently that we wanted to sit down with David and his agent to discuss a new deal.

"He only signed a new contract in the recent past but we felt that his performances this season were such that it warranted us to sit down with him and discuss a new contract and talks are progressing well

Bents' performances HAVE turned heads in recent times but he is VERY happy at Rovers so has no need to move on, a move to Newcastle WOULDN'T be a productive move (or step forward) anyway would it!!!

He's better off having some good seasons under his belt before he flies the nest. Too many leave to early, crash & never recover.

Let's hope he remembers the grass is not always greener! I hope his expereince at Arsenal will remind him of that. However, he needs to learn the next level to make him truely great... how to handle being marked out of the game... a few times this seasons he has been made ineffective by good tactics from oppostion

I think he will remember that - but he might also realise that he's a better player now as well. Bents is a decent, honest lad and I think he'll be with us for a while yet, he's broken into the England squad with a 'small' club and he's having a great season, no reason for him to go.

Encouraging from Mr. Williams. I wish those Geordies would stop claiming to be better than us then try and take our best players and coach. I think Bents is a good enough lad to stay for a while yet!

if bents goes its top four not the biggest excuse for a football club ever! and if he did go we would surely look for a hefty sum im thinkin somewhere around 25million

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
