Bent Interest Knocked Back Since Kinnear Arrival
Despite the constant rumours that Newcastle are after Darren Bent ...
... that was BEFORE the arrival of Joe Kinnear.
And since then Alan Pardew's wish-list has gone on the fire.
Aston Villa confirmed today that they have not yet had any enquiries over Bent.
They are willing to sell the former England striker for £8million, and apparently Newcastle were top of the sides "interested".
But so far Villa have heard nothing.
Bent, 29, is their record signing as he cost £18m plus add-ons when he joined in 2011.
But last season the forward started just 12 matches, and boss Paul Lambert has no plans for him as a regular first teamer next term.
