Tottenham's David Bentley looking for MLS loan according to agent

The winger, back at White Hart Lane, is reported to be keeping his options open regarding a move abroad, with the USA his favoured destination

Tottenham winger David Bentley is reportedly looking to regain match fitness with a loan move to an MLS side.

The former England international has been frozen out of White Hart Lane, and has suffered a string of injuries alongside previous loan moves to West Ham and Birmingham City.

Now, Bentley is eager to relocate abroad and see's the MLS as a perfect opportunity to kick-start his career.

Despite making seven appearances for England, and being the subject of long comparisons with fellow free-kick specialist David Beckham throughout his career, Bentley is yet to fulfil the potential that saw Spurs spend £17 million on him in the summer of 2008.

When questioned about a possible move abroad, his agent Rob Segal stated: "This is something that is interesting for David, as it will also get him fit. He would like to go there on loan as soon as possible."

Although Steven Pienaar’s temporary move back to Everton has seen Bentley being included in Spurs’ Premier League 25-man squad, his days in north London look numbered, with various MLS clubs monitoring the situation.
