Hughes admits Stoke were keen on Fulham matchwinner Bent

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes admits they considered Fulham striker Darren Bent over the summer.

Bent hit the winner against Stoke on Saturday.

Hughes said: "We looked at Darren but we were told he wouldn't come to Stoke - or his agent wouldn't - so that was that.

"We don't know why, but we didn't get a chance.

"If a player like Darren Bent gets an opportunity, more often than not he takes it."
