Bent To Palace?

Bent To Palace?

It's being reported in the press that newly promoted Crystal Palace have agreed personal terms with unwanted striker Darren Bent, and now they hope to reach an agreement with us.

The Mirror were the first with the story late last night, but rumours suggesting that Ian Holloway was interested in the striker have been rumbling on for some time but nothing concrete seemed to come of things.

However, they report that our £6million asking price is a little rich for the London club, and they want us to agree to a lower amount to make the move happen.

If there is any truth in this there will be a deal here that suits everybody. A lower up front price and then clause based follow up payments would seem to be the likely outcome.

So they've agreed personal terms with Bent, before even agreeing a fee with us? I thought a fee had to be agreed first, before a player can talk to club? Anyway I'm not complaining, let him go, get £6m and put it towards Joleon Lescott or some other top CB

if £6M is too much for them for a proven premiership player never mind a proven goal scorer, then they are truly doomed. Cheap skates, should've stayed in the championship where they belong

Just goes to show how far his stock has fallen if true. In a year he'll be playing championship football. I just hope this wakes Fulham into putting in a proper bid for the value we want.

Just need permission to talk SJH, a fee doesn't have to be agreed first it just means his personal term agreement (if true) are provisional not signed.

I remember Holloway at Blackpool laying into us very snotilly for supposedly trying to get Charley Adam for an insultingly low fee. Best Villa remember this if Holloway/Palace really are trying to do a deal!

If Faulkner hadn't given him such large wages then he'd be much easier to shift.

Deal at 6 million :) Randy Lerner is the banker of Deal and No Deal and won't offer anything less to release Bent from his madness 65k (reported) a week contract.
