The Daily Mail are reporting tonight that Villa will allow Darren Bent to leave in January, but only if potential suitors cough up £18million for the transfer fee.
There are no quotes, or even a reference to a source inside the club, but Moxley rarely is far from the mark when it comes to this sort of stuff, and it is a sensible progression given what we’ve seen lately and Bent’s lack of involvement in the first team.
I’m sure as January nears this story won’t go away and neither will the rumours, but the bottom line is if Paul Lambert wants more from our forwards then he has to make the decision on who makes up our squad, even if it does mean we lose a finisher of the class of Bent in the process.
If Bent does go, then as long as the money is reinvested and Lambert uses it to get a replacement who more suits his plans, and then strengthens other areas of the team few will complain going off the general consensus on the Bent Departure Forum Thread.
