Home Championship Blackburn Rovers Fulham sign Bent on loan

Fulham sign Bent on loan


Aston Villa striker Darren Bent will play at Fulham this season after completing a loan move away from Villa on Friday.

The striker will be eligible to play in Fulham’s opening Barclays Premier League game of the season against Sunderland.

Bent had trouble playing regularly last season following Christian Benteke’s arrival to the club. With Benteke staying at Villa, Bent looked for places to go in order to get more time on the pitch.

Martin Jol, who worked with Bent at Tottenham back in 2007, was keen on reuniting with the 29-year-old.

Jol told the club’s website: “Darren Bent is a striker I have always admired.

“He has shown in the Barclays Premier League that he is composed and clinical in front of goal but, even if he is not scoring, he is involved in some good link-up play, creating opportunities for his team-mates.

“I’m delighted that he has joined us, he gives us pace up front and I am confident that he will add to our goals scored tally this season.”
