All done and dusted thanks to a rather terse message on the official site:
"We have reached agreement for the transfer of Darren Bent to Sunderland.
Darren joined us from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2007 and went on to make 79 First Team appearances in our colours.
We thank Darren for his contribution and wish him every success for the future."
They fail to mention he was the clubs top scorer last season with 17 goals. Unfortunatly we have replaced him with someone who is likely to score even less.
Bent's playing days were numbered at Spurs when Sandra Redknapp went ahead of him in the pecking order.
Maybe it was because Sandra did a very good Ray Parlour impression. All the best Darren, here's hoping the money raised will be spent on a good striker.
