Darren Bent’s future has become subject to intense speculation after the media photographed him shopping while Aston Villa were losing against Liverpool. Darren Bent missed the match due to an injury, but everyone was expecting him to be present at Villa Park.
Instead, Darren Bent was out shopping for Christmas, which has really angered the Aston Villa supporters. That has become a wildfire recently, with many speculating that Darren Bent would be sold in the January transfer window. Darren Bent he has not exactly put himself in glory with his performances this season, as he has not been able to adapt to the Alex McLeish style of play. Villa’s odds on the Betfair Premiership football index have dropped significantly over the course of the season so far.
It is thought that Alex McLeish will be willing to listen to offers for the England striker, but Darren Bent has ruled out speculation that he will be leaving in the January transfer window. Darren Bent moved to Aston Villa in £ 18 million deal last January, but it has been rumoured that clubs like QPR will be interested in signing the England striker. Darren Bent is especially known for his wonderful goal scoring record for every team he plays, and it seems that Neil Warnock is targeting Bent in order to steer clear away from the relegation zone. He had been linked to a return to Spurs, but their return to winning ways may have put that on hold for now.
“I can assure the Villa fans that I’m committed to the football club and I love playing for Villa. I am passionate about Villa and playing here and I want to score goals for the team to do my best for the Villa fans. People sometimes forget where Villa were in the Premier League table (near the bottom) when I came here when Sunderland were sixth at the time,” Darren Bent said that when asked about his future at Villa Park.
