Sky Sports | Football | Transfer Centre | Speculation | Bent asks to quit Black Cats
Sunderland striker Darren Bent has handed in a transfer request after Aston Villa made an £18million move for the England international.
Bent has been a regular scorer for the Black Cats since joining from Tottenham 18 months ago, but he has now asked to quit the North East.
He has scored 36 goals in 63 appearances during his time on Wearside following his £10million switch from Tottenham.
If the football gods are kind, Bent will be lining up for both of Villa's matches in this upcoming fantasy gameweek.
This is a bit of a shock for the Black Cats, who could now be facing the loss of both of their starting forwards from last season, with Kenwyne Jones having already moved to Stoke. Surely this make Gyan THE MAN and his fantasy value will have to be adjusted accordingly. It also puts more of a burden on Danny Welbeck, and possibly Steed Malbranque, who might be given an advanced role behind the strikers by Steve Bruce.
