Darren Bent To Stay At Villa

Darren Bent To Stay At Villa

Pete Colley, Sky's man on the spot for Aston Villa, has been told that Darren Bent will be staying at Villa this season.

Pete Colley ‏@petecolley
Being told Bent stays!!

Nothing to add. If he'd been allowed to go, it would really have been the final straw unless replaced with better would it not?

So, a summer exit instead then!

Allowed to go Fear?? I get the impression that there's no takers... Complete waste of money unless you've got top top quality wingers and base 90% of your attacking strategy around him. He's 1 dimensional and CANNOT adapt. Sure he's a nice guy though ;-D ( as if anyone gives a toss.)

aye, think you know what I mean, I know you don't like him, but we can't sell without bringing in better all the time, that is why we are in this mess. Sold him, got an injury, we have no alternatives. Sell him, bring in better and ok, that is a manager decision. Not getting into the bent good/bad argument as I'm bored of that from a 3million page thread in the forum! LOL

No takers I would think is the reason we have him, personaly I think he is over rated. COTVABU

I really thought he would be on his way after the performance against Newcastle. With Benteke, Weimann, Gabby and Bowery do we really need him sitting on the bench or putting in 45 mins of goal hanging until he's substituted ? I'd rather have Crouch back.

In fact a swap deal for Bent with Crouch and Charlie Adams in return sounds like a good deal to me.

At least he offers more of a goal threat than Kenwyn Jones......

Doesn't matter until the window shuts. If man city come in and bid 20 million at 20 to midnight he is gone.

Bents a quality player, we dont have the players to help him out but theres no point selling him for way below his value just because we want to get rid of him. remember he did keep us up in his first season.

He's not going to increase in value sat on our bench David and he won't get much of a game either. He wouldn't have had to "save us" as you put if GH hadn't radically changed the playing style and created the need for him. We did finish 9th also. Oops, started ranting again.
