Aaron Lennon’s long spell at Tottenham may come to an end on transfer deadline day after it has been reported that QPR are interested in signing him on a permanent basis. Harry Redknapp knows the England international extremely well after having managed him for a few years when he was at Tottenham. Lennon was one of the important players under the regime of Redknapp, as he formed the perfect partner for Gareth Bale on the right side of the wing. The 27-year-old was a major reason in Tottenham finishing fourth and qualifying for the Champions League a few years ago.
The head of AC Milan has disclosed that he had the opportunity to sell Mario Balotelli for a big amount of money just before the beginning of the ongoing FIFA World Cup and he had almost secured that deal, but, for some reason, it couldn’t materialize.
There have been a lot of rumours of late about a couple of English clubs being interested in buying Balotelli. Arsenal is believed to be one of them.
Balotelli’s performance for his national side Italy in Brazil was not as good as expected. He began aright with a match defining goal against England, but, in the next two games, he disappointed his fans big time.
David Bentley, the former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur player has retired from professional football at the age of 29, after claiming to have fallen out of love with the game.
The Englishman played for seven different games during his career as a professional – Arsenal and their North London rivals Spurs, Norwich City, West Ham United as well as a stint with FC Rostov. But he spent arguably the most successful spell of his career with Blackburn Rovers, becoming the first ever player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick against Manchester United in a thrilling 4-3 victory over Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
