Fulham launch £5m bid for Bent

Fulham look to secure Darren Bent with an improved offer

Premier League side Fulham have launched an improved bid rumored to be somewhere around £5 million for out-of-favor Aston Villa striker Darren Bent. The club has been in a race for the English international’s signature as they look to take some of the pressure off Dimitar Berbatov up front and to add a proven attacking option to their club, according to Sky Sports.

Fulham have already seen a bid around £4 million rejected for the striker but have reportedly upped their offer to somewhere in the £5 million range hoping that it will be enough to land the man who has scored 71 career Premier League goals.

The 29-year-old Bent has moved around the English Premier League quite a bit in his career, starting with Championship clubs Ipswich Town and Charlton before joining north London outfit Tottenham for two seasons, where he performed well. Bent was then sold to Sunderland in 2009 where he played for two seasons before finally moving to Aston Villa in 2011. It looks as if the striker is set to move to a new Premier League side once again with Fulham apparently in the lead for the attacker.

Bent, who does not drink any alcohol, was born in England to Jamaican parents but decided to play for the English national team after coming up through the Ipswich Town youth ranks and spending his entire career playing for English clubs. Bent will likely continue along that trend as he has Fulham and Newcastle hot on his trail.

Newcastle, however, may end their pursuit of Bent after agreeing to a fee for Lyon attacker Bafetimbi Gomis earlier today and reportedly have QPR’s Loic Remy within their sights as well.
