It’s being reported in the press that newly promoted Crystal Palace have agreed personal terms with unwanted striker Darren Bent, and now they hope to reach an agreement with us.

The Mirror were the first with the story late last night, but rumours suggesting that Ian Holloway was interested in the striker have been rumbling on for some time but nothing concrete seemed to come of things.

However, they report that our £6million asking price is a little rich for the London club, and they want us to agree to a lower amount to make the move happen.

If there is any truth in this there will be a deal here that suits everybody. A lower up front price and then clause based follow up payments would seem to be the likely outcome.
