Have Hampsters landed Bent?

West Ham are set to beat Tottenham and Liverpool to sign Charlton striker Darren Bent in an £18 million deal. According to the Daily Star, the Hammers have offered £80,000 a week to secure Bent's services, while Charlton will receive £15 million plus Marlon Harewood and Hayden Mullins, who are surplus to requirements at Upton Park.

Possibly surplus to requirements at The Valley as well. I can believe that the Irons have won the race to re-unite Bent with Curbs, but I am dubious about the supposed structure of the deal and the figures given.

Another version is that we would have to pay £12m for Harewood and Mullins, which seems a bit much, even if it would reduce the amount we would have to pay to Ipswich because of the sell on clause. Moreover, The Valley is not a donkey pasture.
