It is understood that Blackburn winger David Bentley looks set to reject the advances of Liverpool after admitting he was interested in returning to London where he grew up.

Bentley is likely to join Tottenham for a fee believed to be in the region of £12 million this summer, as Juande Ramos continues his rebuilding programme.

Bentley moving to Tottenham is likely to ruffle a few feathers at the Emirates Stadum; where Bentley began his career at Arsenal. Bentley left the club angry at his lack of first-team opportunity under Arsene Wenger.
