Redknapp predicts Bentley exit

David Bentley could leave Tottenham this summer, according to boss Harry Redknapp. The 24-year-old has endured a difficult season in north London following his £15million switch from Blackburn Rovers ten months ago and has not started a Premier League game since January. Redknapp admitted: "David's going to look at it and think 'hang on, I'm not getting in the team even when Aaron Lennon's not fit. Maybe it's time I moved on'. "As a person I like him very much, he's a good lad and a good player. "I've played differently and changed the way we've played a bit. I've had results so no-one can complain." Meanwhile, Redknapp was unimpressed with Roman Pavlyuchenko's reaction to being substituted during Saturday's 2-1 victory against Manchester City. The Spurs boss said of the Russian's petulance: "I don't like that. "The fans are here and paying their money to watch and when a player runs down the tunnel without sitting down and watching and getting behind the team, I think that's disrespectful to his team-mates."
