Bentley scores debut goal in Tottenham win

David Bentley made an immediate impression at Tottenham Hotspur with a debut goal in Friday night's 2-0 pre-season victory over Celtic in Rotterdam.

The England international only completed his protracted £17million move from Blackburn on Wednesday but was soon in the thick of the action at the Feyenoord Jubilee Tournament.

Bentley scored Tottenham's second goal in a well-deserved 2-0 victory with 10 minutes remaining.

'I've come here with a big price tag and I just wanted to get off to a good start and hit the ground running to be honest,' Bentley told Sky Sports.

'I haven't been playing many games so it was tough getting back into the swing of things but I was delighted to get a goal. I loved every minute of it.'

Darren Bent continued his fine pre-season goalscoring form for Spurs by giving them the advantage after 23 minutes.

It was Bent's seventh goal in three matches and the England striker shrugged off suggestions that the team would struggle in front of goal after the departure of Robbie Keane to Liverpool.

'We've signed a lot of good players this summer so it's going to be a good season,' the striker said.

It is now looking increasingly unlikely, however, that they will be joined at White Hart Lane by Russia's Euro 2008 sensation Andrei Arshavin.

Zenit St Petersburg have invited Spurs to make a bid upwards of £20million but it is understood manager Juande Ramos will focus his attention elsewhere.

Dennis Lachter, Arshavin's advisor, had previously claimed the 27-year-old was ready to join Spurs but the London club have not lodged a bid.

Another Russian, Spartak Moscow striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, is one of other players Spurs are monitoring but a move for him has not gathered pace yet.
