Villa seal deal for record signing Bent
Aston Villa are delighted to confirm that Darren Bent will be unveiled today as the club's record signing, having agreed a four-and-a-half year deal to June 2015.
The 26-year-old England striker completed a medical before the formalities of the signing today and will be available for the Barclays Premier League game against Manchester City on Saturday, January 22 at Villa Park.
I think we'll see the best of DBent again. I'm assuming that we're going to see a 4-2-3-1 from Villa as such:
Walker Collins Dunne/Cuellar Clark/new left-back
Downing Young Albrighton
That attacking three midfield can all cross the ball and swap positions. And all of them can feed DBent, who has always been most dangerous as a lone striker. All he needs to do is play off the center back and look to get in behind and take the chances that will surely come.
Neither Carew nor Heskey were mobile enough to play this role. Agbonlahor is fast, but he isn't big enough. In DBent, I think Villa have the right player for the position. And with a double match week (albeit with one match against Manchester City), this is looking like a great move for Villa, Bent, and fantasy football managers.
