Tottenham winger David Bentley is set to return to Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says the Championship outfit plan to take the unwanted Spurs midfielder on loan for the rest of the season, with a view of signing him on a permanent deal in the summer.

Bentley, 28, has spent the last three months playing for Rostov in Russia after loan spells at West Ham and Birmingham in the last few seasons.

He is now determined to get a move to an English club during the transfer window and a return to his old stomping ground may suit all parties.
