Charlton seek £15M-plus for Bent

Charlton Athletic won't accept anything less than £15 million for star striker Darren Bent this summer.

The striker's future is unclear as he has yet to hold discussions with the club and will do so when he returns from holiday.

"He's in the Caribbean at the moment and doesn't want to discuss anything until he gets back," an executive at the club told the Observer. "There's actually been no offers for him. But if we don't get the asking price he isn't going. We turned down £15million in January. And that was from a club outside the big four - Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool. We had to turn that down then because we still had a chance of avoiding relegation."
