This Spurs signing has pretty much had a bad time of it since day one, now it appears his White Hart Lane days could be coming to an end…
Sunderland are reportedly ready to offer striker Darren Bent an escape route out of his Tottenham Hotspur nightmare.
Bent, who signed for Spurs for £16.5million last summer from Charlton, failed to live up to his billing at White Hart Lane last season.
The striker struggled to break the first-team pairing of Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov and 16 of his 27 league appearances were off the Tottenham bench.
Bent has become frustrated and he is unlikely to accept another campaign as a back-up striker, with Juande Ramos expected to draft in his own recruits.
The Daily Mail claims that Sunderland boss Roy Keane has expressed an interest in the striker – who netted six Premier League goals last season.
Spurs are expected to try and recoup a large amount of the money they paid for Bent and Keane could be allowed the funds to boost his squad. (teamtalk)
£10m-rated Darren Bent was always going to find it hard to justify a price tag that he had no control over. The stats show that he hasn’t been the worse signing in the world, but he simply cannot compete with the likes of Dimitar and Robbie, so it would be better for his career if he left, as was the case for Jermain Defoe. How much money do Spurs fans think they should take for the former Charlton man, should he be allowed to leave for a cut-price fee?
