Wiki page is a worry.

On 24 February 2017, Tottenham Hotspur announced that they had reached an agreement with Schalke 04 for Bentaleb's transfer to be made permanent at the end of the loan period.[19][20]

In March 2019 he was demoted to Schalke's under-23 team, "due to disciplinary reasons".[21] He returned to the first-team in April 2019,[22] before being dropped to the second team again later that month.[23]

People you forgot existed. Just had a look and he hasn't played at all this season. Injured and discipline problems it would appear.

I remember him taking this p*ss out of us up here when Sherwood was in charge I think?

We're desperate for a midfielder either ways.

Still think Abeid was better than him though.

Didn’t realise he was still a thing!
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Is it in an area we need? Cannot remember him from spurs so other than it being low risk in a loan seems we have more pressing needs in the striker and left back department especially as we need to free up squad numbers

We've got plenty of bodies in there but none of them actually retain the ball.

Is he a CM or does he play elsewhere? Not a position where I'd say we need strengthening!

If we get this guy and Valentino that's those two places gone, still think we need a left back and a striker meaning we need 2 more places. Not disagreeing we should improve on the squad with every window if we can but with the deadwood the club would like to go away being hard to shift or being injured unless we have players we know are due to go before the end of the window it does still meaning unregistering and paying players for the rest of the season.

”They don't want me to train with the first-team squad or to be associated with the squad in any way.”

He was very young when he was elevated to the first team. Always felt like he could be really, really good, but always had some serious attitude. Feelings were mixed when we sold him, but his career since has stalled in the way it seemed like it might all along. Good player when engaged, mind.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.
