'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blues Land David Bentley On Loan

Tottenham Hotspur winger David Bentley has been given a chance to resurrect his career by joining Birmingham City on loan until the end of the season.

Talented Bentley has not lived up to his potential since arriving at White Hart Lane from Blackburn for 12 million in 2008.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp recently admitted that the player had failed to win over Tottenham supporters and will now look to rejuvenate his career with a spell at St Andrew's.

Former club Blackburn were also reported to be interested in Bentley.

Birmingham manager Alex McLeish said: 'We're delighted to have David's services. He is a classy footballer and will enhance the quality of the squad.

'He is a natural footballer capable of top delivery at set-pieces. With the likes of him, (Alexander) Hleb and (Sebastian) Larsson - who has had a great season consistency-wise - we have creative players. Bentley can provide more competition. He has had his moments at Spurs but there is fierce competition for places there.

'They have a glut of superstars. With the introduction of people like (Rafael) van der Vaart, players of that ilk, and the rise of (Aaron) Lennon, it has become very difficult for him. The quality is amazing and maybe he can get his career back on track here.'
