There was new from Sky Sports late last night that David Bentley will be having a medical at Birmingham over the weekend.
David Bentley – having medical at Birmingham?
That’s all the news report said and nothing much extra, but they made a big deal about it – like it was an exclusive and all that silly stuff.
But if it’s true it hopefully it is potentially good news for Newcastle United.
That’s because presumably Bentley would be a replacement on the right wing for Sebastian Larsson, who Newcastle are reported to have already bid a £1.5M fee for.
Unfortunately, no new news yesterday on the Larsson front, other then Sunderland were also interested in the Swedish winger – but when were Sunderland not interested in a Newcastle target? 😀
If Newcastle are close to signing Larsson, they wouldn’t want him cup tied at Milwall today, so we’ll look for him not to be playing this afternoon.
We have to assume no news is good news, because there’s little doubt it would be a great deal for Newcastle United to get a player of Seb’s class for just £1.5M.
Ben Arfa and Larsson for £6.5M, when Man City pay out £27M for Bosnian striker Edin Dzebo? FC Wolfsburg must be laughing all the way to the bank.
And we see the Daily Mirror are after Andy Carroll again – saying that he injured his thigh in a drunken brawl late last year – when will it ever end?
And maybe that’s why Alan Pardew sent Andy away for a week to Dubai.
Carroll must be a really good player in England, otherwise the Daily Mirror and the gossip press in general wouldn’t be trying so hard to pull him down.
Why do they always do that in England – is selling papers really that important?
After all they lost England the World Cup in 2018 – but we notice that’s not mentioned too much these days in the gossip press – but it was the sad truth.
