Villa boss O'Neill won't pay silly money for Tottenham's Bentley

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill won't pay silly money for Tottenham winger David Bentley.

The Daily Star says O'Neill is a big admirer of winger Bentley but he won't go over the £10m mark for the ex-Blackburn star.

He tried to sign Bentley last summer but was pipped by Tottenham, who splashed out £15m.

Bentley, 24, has made just 24 appearances at White Hart Lane and Harry Redknapp would be happy to unload him.

O'Neill will give him a second chance - but only if the price is right, despite being handed a sizeable transfer kitty in his bid to crack the Premier League's elite top four.
