Spurs transfer news: MK Dons want David Bentley on loan

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson is hoping to sign Tottenham’s forgotten man David Bentley on loan.

The 27-year-old played five league games for West Ham on loan earlier this season, but returned to White Hart Lane after he was ruled out for six months with a knee injury.

“David Bentley is a friend of mine. He needs to play football,” Robinson told BBC Look East.

“He would be perfect for us. He knows where I am. We are only 40 minutes from where he lives and we have both got the same agent.”

The Dons boss also confirmed that the two clubs have not been in conversation over the midfielder.

“We’ve not approached or spoken to Tottenham,” added Robinson. “I worked with him at Blackburn and we’ve always stayed in touch.

“He’s someone I respect immensely and someone I know has got an amazing gift.

“If he ends up playing at this club we’ll be very fortunate but that’s a long way away.

“You’ve got to be realistic. It might be something we can pull off and I’ll definitely ask the question should it come up.”
