Liverpool Manager Roy Hodgson To Save David Bentley's Career With £5m Bid - Report

Left out in the dark at Tottenham Hotspur, winger David Bentley could be set to re-light his career at Liverpool, according to The Metro.

Roy Hodgson has reportedly indicated that he would be keen to bring the player to Anfield during the January transfer window, if a fee in the region of £5 million can be agreed.

The 26-year-old has been frozen out at Tottenham Hotspur under manager Harry Redknapp and Bentley believes this is the perfect opportunity to get his football career back on track.

The winger was tipped to be an England star after securing an £18m move to Spurs from Blackburn Rovers in 2008. But injury and a lack of form has put pay to these notions and Bentley has only shown brief glimpses to merit such price tag.

This has meant he has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane, behind stars such as Luca Modric and Rafael van der Vaart.

However, Hodgson is to give him another chance and is willing to buy him for nearly a quarter of the fee Spurs paid. The Reds boss has revealed that he is desperate to land a tricky winger and Bentley represents value for money at that price.
