West Ham United are closing in on the loan signing of out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder David Bentley according to

The 27-year-old winger's search for regular first-team football could take him down a division into the Npower Championship with a short move across London.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has made no secret of Bentley's availability after admitting he has fallen way down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

Having been deemed surplus to requirements at Tottenham, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is preparing to bring Bentley to Upton Park until January - in a bid to reignite his career.


The two clubs have been in regular contact, having just confirmed the completion of a deal that sees West Ham favourite Scott Parker switch allegiances to north London, as Spurs look to continue strengthening their squad before the window slams shut tonight.

After spending the second half of last season on loan at Birmingham City, Bentley's Tottenham career looks to be all but over, and is believed to be open to a short-term switch to Allardyce's promotion hopefuls.
