Darren Bent Dismisses Transfer Talk

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has distanced himself from any transfer talk as he was once again left on the bench by Paul Lambert yesterday, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Bent came on as a sub as Villa snatched a point at home to Lambert’s former club Norwich City, but despite being a regular passenger this season at Villa Park, Bent doesn’t feel a move is imminent:

“It won’t come from my side. I won’t ask for a transfer, of course I wouldn’t do that,

“Villa are a massive club and I always want to play for huge clubs.

“For me to ask for a move would be silly, especially at this stage of the season when there’s still a long way to go.

“Everyone would like an explanation about why things happen, but that’s not the manager’s style and I respect that.

“I’m not going to go in and say I want to leave. I’m more than happy at Villa and to play my football here. The attraction is the size of the club, the history and a massive fan base. I’m prepared to give it as long as it takes.”
