Wel it seems after last nights goings on Bent will be looking fo a new club this January.
We need strkers and the press seem to be suggesting we'd be a club looking at him.
For me I hope not in all honesty. Just wondering peoples thoughts.
Hi Noo Noo
I disagree on that one.
I think Bent might turn out to be a really good January signing if we take him on loan with an option.
He's a proven league goalscorer with a point to prove.
A big yes for me.
A swap deal involving Downing would be best for both clubs. Villa paid £23m for Bent whilst we thought £19m was bad for Downing (it is). That way, we could get a back up striker that isnt Falcao but would improve our squad, Villa would get a guy who can start games rather then stink up the changing rooms. Neither club need ever own up to the massive losses.
We play good football but don't have enough goal threats, Bent is that if nothing else. Even if it was a straight deal for £6m then I think it should be a goer as I don't think we are looking for a first team starter or someone to build a team around. As long as the major target is a winger with goals in the locker I am happy.
