Fulham make new Bent bid

Fulham have made a fresh bid for Aston Villa striker Darren Bent, the Daily Star understands.

Villa manager Paul Lambert is looking to offload the England international, who made just eight starts in the Premier League last season, and is hoping to receive around £6m for the striker – just a quarter of what the Midlands club paid for him two and a half years ago.

The Cottagers opening bid of £4m for the 29 year old was considered too low, though Martin Jol is still hoping that he can land his top transfer target for less that the asking price, and has tabled a £5m offer.

Bent has already had two spells in the capital, spending two seasons at both Charlton Athletic and Tottenham Hotspur before moving to Sunderland in 2009.

He has also played for Ipswich Town, where he began his career and has amassed 103 Premier League goals so far, a record bettered by only five other players who are still yet to retire.
