Newcastle in for Bent

Newcastle United are considering making a move for Aston Villa’s out of favour striker Darren Bent, though are put off by his £6million pound valuation, the Independent understands.

The England international was frozen out at Villa Park last season, making just eight Premier League starts for Paul Lambert’s side.

Hull City are also interested in taking the former Sunderland, Tottenham Hotspur, Charlton Athletic and Ipswich Town man, but with Bent himself said to be keen on returning to the North-East, Newcastle are leading the chase.

However, the financial terms of the deal may need to be lowered for the deal to go ahead, with the player’s current deal of £70,000 per week out of the Magpies strict wage structure, and the price tag considered too steep for a 29 year old.

The club have previously detailed their policy of only buying players who can later be sold on at a profit, though it appears that manager Alan Pardew is keen to make an exception this time around.
