Tottenham make low-ball bid

Tottenham has angered Charlton Athletic in their negotiations over a potential transfer of Darren Bent. Spurs manager Martin Jol is interested in signing the England international, but it looks less likely as Charlton value Bent at 15m pounds. This opens the door for West Ham and Liverpool who have expressed interest in the striker.

Tottenham’s 8m pound offer for the striker is almost half the asking price. Charlton are confident they can get a much better price for the player and rejected the offer out of hand knowing full well a number of clubs could use a quality striker. Statements from the Charlton camp claim that they won't be forced into selling their best player on the cheap.

West Ham, Newcastle and Liverpool are also interested in the 23 year old, but Newcastle have signed Mark Viduka so it’s unlikely an offer will come from them, but Liverpool have done very little this transfer season and West Ham, flush with a bit of cash, are itching to start making moves.

But Tottenham are in a strong negotiating position as Bent has made it clear he wants a move to White Hart Lane. It’s obvious they are using Bent’s wishes as a ploy to low-ball for a cut rate price. Player’s have more power today than in the past and Tottenham may just succeed.

tottenham are playing this one smart. bent wants to play there and if they wait and take their time they will get him. spurs have enough striker to go without so they dont need to spend too much on him

It may sound like a low bid, but when you consider they only paid £10million for Berbatov, £8mill for Bent would seem about right. It is not as if he is England's no 1 striker after all.

Very fuuny! Well done!

I only realised that it actually WAS a joke when I read the bit that says "Bent has made it clear he wants a move to White Hart Lane". Up until then, I was almost taking it seriously!
