Curbs: send Bent across river

Alan Curbishley is expected to sign as West Ham manager today (confirmed as I sit here at Gatwick waiting for my delayed flight to Vilnius) and reports are suggesting that his first transfer target will be Darren Bent. There is no news about Marcus Bent or Bryan Hughes.

With a mooted fee of £10m, it would be difficult for the Charlton board to resist. He would fetch far less in a fire sale at the end of the season.

Bent's departure would leave the goal starved Addicks lightweight up front, especially if one of our heavyweights, JFH, departs for Watford as rumoured. The club has, however, been linked with Crewe forward Luke Varney who might welcome even half a season in the Premiership and could adapt to Championship football.
