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.
