If true, wouldn't this increase our chances of keeping Clinton? I reckon Spurs would be the most logical place for him to go - they could afford him, they need new blood up front, he wouldn't have to leave london, they're the only decent sized club where he wouldn't spend half his time on the bench, and he was a spurs fan when he was a boy. So if this is true, wahoo!

seems likely as Ipswich will need to ship one or two out.

Wouldn't be surprised to see George go either

How can you say this is GOOD news ??????????

This is a p[layer we had on our books not long ago, and that very kind club of ours flogged him for 200k.

Moments later, he is worth 5m and we don't get a penny out of it.

Yeah, Great news !!!!!!!!!!! :sob: :grrr: :grrr:

Ipswich striker Marcus Bent rejected a deadline day move to Premiership newcomers Birmingham.

Blues boss Steve Bruce wanted to sign the Tractor Boys forward on a three-month loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Cash-strapped Ipswich accepted Birmingham's offer but Bent opted to stay in Suffolk.

The former Blackburn striker is one of four Ipswich players to reject moves away from Portman Road before the August 31 transfer deadline, with winger Martijn Reuser, defender Hermann Hreidarsson and captain Matt Holland all staying with the First Division side.

Birmingham owner David Sullivan said he was surprised by Bent's decision.

"It was all sorted out with Ipswich but the player said 'no', which I found a bit strange," he told the Birmingham Mail.

"Had he come here and scored goals, then we'd have been looking to take him permanently at Christmas. It was a big chance for him."

Quality judgement Mr. Venables.

Two defeats in a row for Leeds, is he going to be found out at long last? :D
