Darren Bent Biography
A prolific striker who signed for Aston Villa in January 2011.
Darren became an instant hit with the Villa Park faithful, scoring on his debut at home to Manchester City and finished his first season at Villa Park as the club’s joint-top scorer with nine League goals.
He continued this good form into the 2011-12 campaign and had reached a double-figure tally of goals before a serious ankle injury sustained at Wigan in February ended his season.
Darren’s greatest asset remains his unerring eye for goal and he is able to convert the slimmest of half chances. Darren began his career as a trainee with Ipswich Town and has made over 400 senior appearances, with an impressive goals-per-game ratio.
He made his full England debut against Uruguay in March 2006, with his most recent appearance coming in November 2011.
