David Bentley: I would ‘definitely consider’ permanent transfer from Tottenham to West Ham

Out of favour winger insists that life's been tough at White Hart Lane, and is looking to rebuild with Sam Allardyce's Hammers at Upton Park
David Bentley has admitted that he would 'definitely consider' a permanent transfer to
West Ham after joining the club on a season-long loan from Tottenham.

The former Blackburn and Arsenal winger has endured a difficult time at White Hart Lane following his mega-money switch from Ewood Park, failing to cement himself in manager Harry Redknapp's plans.

After being loaned to Birmingham City for the second half of the 2010-11 season, Bentley has now been sent to West Ham, and the one-time England international is keen to get his career back on track.

"I've had a few low points over the last few years and hopefully I can rebuild as West Ham are trying to do, hopefully it can be the perfect relationship," Bentley told West Ham TV.

"I'm trying to rebuild my career like West Ham are trying to rebuild themselves as a football club, so hopefully we can go hand-in-hand."

"Of course I would definitely consider staying here," he added. "If they consider keeping me then I would definitely consider it."
