STRIKER Darren Bent is a perfect fit for Derby County, says head coach Steve McClaren. Bent will lead the attack again for the Rams tomorrow as they look to further strengthen their place in the play-offs. The former England international goes into the Championship clash in hot form with five goals in his last four games. His tally now is 12 in 15 appearances since he arrived on loan from Aston Villa. McClaren admits Bent's goal return has surprised him. His scoring record is...

DERBY County's hopes of automatic promotion are in tatters and their play-off aspirations would be in a similar sorry state but for Darren Bent. Ten goals in 14 games (10 starts) is the kind of return Derby hoped the striker would provide in his loan move from Aston Villa. His stoppage-time equaliser salvaged an undeserved point in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Brentford at the iPro Stadium, one of many rescue missions staged by the former England international in his three months at the...

DERBY County loan striker Darren Bent says his Aston Villa career may not be over after all. Bent joined the Rams from Villa in January on a deal until the end of the season. His current contract at Villa Park expires in the summer and the former England international was not expecting to return. But new manager Tim Sherwood, who replaced Paul Lambert in February, could offer Bent - Villa's £24m record signing - a new deal with the Premier League club. There have been...

Darren Bent ready to return to Aston Villa if the offer is right

Darren Bent is apparently over his anger at Aston Villa and is now maybe ready to return. Darren Bent, who found himself frozen out of Paul Lambert's Aston Villa and subsequently went on Derby to a loan that we all assumed would end his career here, may be coming back! His contract is out in the summer and given his desire to play regular first-team football, it seemed almost a guarantee that he'd head elsewhere for his next signing.
