Man City launch shock bid for Tottenham winger Bentley

Manchester City are launching a shock bid for Tottenham winger David Bentley.

The Daily Mail says Bentley is set to be handed the golden ticket of a move to Manchester City, who last night closed in on a swap deal with Tottenham involving Bulgaria winger Martin Petrov.

The initial deal for Bentley will be a long-term loan, but it presents the chance for him to restart his career after a dismal 13-month spell at Spurs, who are also signing Niko Kranjcar from Portsmouth for a cut-price £2million.

If the Bentley deal can be completed before today's 5pm deadline - and both managers want the deal to happen - then he will be reunited with Mark Hughes, the boss behind his most productive spell at Blackburn.
