Martin Jol's joke offer

Dutch humourist Martin Jol is proposing to make a £10m offer for Darren Bent to 'test Charlton's resolve.' Given that £2m of such an offer would go to Ipswich, he might as well stick his finger in a dyke to stop a flood.

Newcastle, Liverpool and Arsenal are also rumoured to have shown an interest and it is thought that Charlton would want around £15m for the striker, although a loan deal on the right terms might be considered.

If as reported, Craig Bellamy is being touted for 12 million; to offer 10 for Bent really is a joke.

Not sure the dyke would be too happy

Ken, the problem is that Liverpool can afford to turn down £12m, but I'm not sure we can afford to turn down £10m (especially if mainly cash up front).
