Bent saga continues

Some sources are insisting that toughie Peter Varney is holding out for £17m for Darren Bent, others that a deal with Spurs is imminent.

The Haringey club is believed to have agreed to pay about £13 million rising to a possible £16m for Bent. This would break Tottenham's transfer record of £11m, which they paid to Dynamo Kiev for Sergei Rebrov seven years ago, and pose questions about the future of Jermain 'Judas' Defoe.

Bent is believed to be willing to accept a weekly salary of about £48,000, considerably less than the £75,000 he was offered by the Hampsters.

Personally, I would take about £14m and I think that we will settle for less than £17m.
