Bentley and Bullard To Join Boro
Tottenham are set to offer David Bentley to Middlesbrough FC in a swap deal for Stewart Downing. Jimmy Bullard is also linked with a move to Boro.
Boro had recently turned down a reported £14.5 million offer for winger Stewart Downing and rejected a transfer request from the England international.
Downing played 90 minutes in the Tees-Wear derby and recieved a warm reception from the Boro fans.
However, if Harry Redknapp does include David Bently in the deal, it could see the transfer being completed.
Boro are also set to offer £5 million to Fulham for Jimmy Bullard, if Gary O'Neil completes his move to Portsmouth FC.

Portsmouth are considering raising their initial bid of £4.5m to £5m for Gary O'Neil. This would lead the way to Jimmy Bullard to move to Middlesbrough FC.
