Clubs lining up to land midfielder

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed David Bentley is hoping to leave White Hart Lane. Bentley has slipped way down the pecking order at Tottenham this season and would not appear to figure in Redknapp's plans for the rest of the campaign. The former Arsenal and Blackburn man has made only three appearances this season and is thought to be keen on a move away in search of regular first-team action. With Spurs also in the market for David Beckham, Bentley appears to be surplus to requirements in North London and Redknapp can understand the midfielder's frustration. The likes of Newcastle and Fulham have been credited with an interest in Bentley and Redknapp admits a number of clubs are chasing the 26-year-old. "David (Bentley) did well at the end of last season but he wants to play," said Redknapp. "It's difficult. He's not happy because he's not playing and I understand that. "I wouldn't want him to sit there and say 'I'll take my wages'. He needs to play somewhere and there are a few clubs that want him."
