Official: Darren Bent is an Aston Villa player thumbnail

Aston Villa made a quick move to sign Sunderland and England striker Darren Bent. Aston Villa are paying Sunderland an initial fee of 18 million sterling with the possibility of the fee increasing by another 6 million sterling thanks to bonuses. At the beginning of the transfer market no one was expecting such a move but Bent surprised everyone at Sunderland when he handed in a transfer request. Even though they will be missing Bent’s goals, this is a good piece of business for Sunderland as they had signed the striker for only 10 million sterling from Tottenham.

To sign Darren Bent, Aston Villa broke their previous transfer record fee of 12 million sterling that they paid to sign James Milner and Stewart Downing. Darren Bent has a great goal scoring record as he scored 81 Premiership goals in the last five seasons. Only Drogba and Rooney managed to score more goals then him as they scored 82 goals apiece.
