Bent Fee Will Be Big If He Leaves

Bent Fee Will Be Big If He Leaves

Many newspapers had reported the Addicks were going to accept £12m for Bent after they saw his £18m move to West Ham break down.

The papers seem to think no other club will match the Hammers bid and so Bent will move on for a lower price.

This has been rubbished by Charlton Chief Executive Peter Varney.


'We have a valuation of Darren and we will not sell for less than that,' the Charlton chief executive told the south London press.


'There have been other bids and they don't meet our valuation.


'West Ham matched our valuation and that was why they were given permission last week to speak to Darren."No other club has managed that and as things stand Darren will be staying with Charlton. He is our player and under contract to us.'



Speaking of our star striker Peter continued 'He was the top English scorer in the Premiership two seasons ago and second-highest last season despite missing some games with injury and being part of a struggling team.


'We have a valuation and if that's met the player will be allowed to talk to any interested clubs.'

So then if Bent does go it will be on our terms and at our price. Good to see little old Charlton making a stand.

Is Bent worth £18m? Have your say now…

He's worth the money sandgroanun look at other english transfers: Owen Hargreaves, Carrick, Rio Ferdinand, etc etc. You pay more for British and with the extra cash flying around with the new tv deal Bent has to be priced at £18m

I hope no one signs bent. We need him up front hes goals will bring us back up. But if he goes then £18m we have done a great bit of business. Whatever happens fair play to Bent he has done things the proper way.

I know we have been relegated but we dont need the money. We are secure financially and unless its too good to turn down he will have to stay. Bent will fire us baqck up and that will be worth more to the club than 18m and not returning to the prem due to a lack of goals. We hold all the cards

I would stick to your guns, if you back down, you will never be taken seriuosly by any other club come the transfer windows.

Dont think he worth 18m cant see anyone paying that amount.Its weather you back down or stick to yr price which may decide if he stays unles he hands in a transfer request then his value will come down.I hope to see him stay at Chalrton would be good for the league.
