The Express is reporting today that Newcastle United will (again) go after Darren Bent this summer, after failing to sign him on loan last summer from Aston Villa, and he finally ended up at Fulham.
Darren Bent – on loan at Fulham last season
But he was never a starter for the now relegated London club, so can this player possibly be good enough for what we hope is a rejuvenated Newsletter team this August?
The answer is he’s probably not good enough, and Newcastle can do a lot better in recruiting strikers this summer, than going back for the 30 year-old former Ipswich, Charlton and Tottenham striker, who has played 13 times with four goals for England.
Last season Bent appeared 23 times in the Premier League for Fulham, mostly as a substitute, and scored just three goals.
This summer transfer window is going to be vitally important for Newcastle, and we cannot afford not to bring in top (young) players this summer.
Darren Bent should not be one of them
Well that’s our opinion – what do you think?
