Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone rates Blackburn Rovers winger David Bentley as among the best players in the Premiership.

"I played a few games with him at Under-21 level, he's a quality player, technically gifted with both feet and he works hard as well, so that's the ideal combination," Huddlestone told the Spurs website.

"Technically he's one of the best players in the league, he's showed in the last few seasons that his delivery is one of the best as well and this season he's chipping in with a few more goals and that can only help his international prospects."
