Derby County: We let ourselves down, says Rams loan striker...

DERBY County's players have nobody to blame but themselves for their failure to reach the Championship play-offs, according to Darren Bent. Bent, who spent the second half of the 2014-15 season on loan with the Rams from Aston Villa, scored 12 goals in 17 appearances during his time at the iPro Stadium. However, a run of only two wins from their final 13 games saw Derby slip from top of the table to eighth place on the last day of the campaign. For whatever reason, we couldn't live...

ASTON Villa boss Tim Sherwood says he is considering the possibility of offering striker Darren Bent a new deal. Bent is out of contract at Villa Park and spent the second half of the 2014-15 season on loan at Derby County. Rams head coach Steve McClaren would like to sign Bent on a permanent basis. But Sherwood has not ruled out the prospect of keeping hold of the 31-year-old front man, who cost Villa a club record £24m. There's a decision to be made over Darren and he's...

Derby County would like to have Tom Ince and Darren Bent again

STEVE McClaren would like to have Tom Ince and Darren Bent at Derby County again next season but admits their futures could lie elsewhere. Ince hit 11 goals in 18 games during his loan spell from Hull City. Bent scored 12 in 17 games while on loan from Aston Villa. It is difficult with Tom because he is a Hull City player but we would love him, said McClaren. I think Darren is a free agent and after scoring the goals he did I think there will be quite a few clubs after...

Sherwood nixes Bent return while welcoming back other loanees

Could we have seen the last of Darren Bent as a Villa player? This past weekend saw the Football League season draw to a close, and with this, Aston Villa's players who were out on loan in the Football League have returned. With just one notable omission. Whilst Gary Gardner, Joe Bennett and Callum Robinson are making their return to Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground following loan spells in the Championship and League 1, Darren Bent has been told by Tim Sherwood that his presence isn't needed for the remainder of the season. Sherwood said: "I don’t need him back, I can’t play...

STRIKER Darren Bent is back training after missing Derby County's high-scoring draw at Millwall. Bent was ill over the weekend but should be available to face Reading in Saturday's final league game at the iPro Stadium. The former England international has scored 12 goals in 16 appearances during his loan spell from Aston Villa. Another of the loanees, Jesse Lingard, also trained on Monday. He started at Millwall but was withdrawn at half-time for tactical reasons and also because he was...
