Newcastle boss Pardew swipe at Fulham signing Bent

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has had a pop at Darren Bent over the Aston Villa striker's loan move to Fulham.

The Magpies were unwilling to subsidise the majority of £75,000 per week wages, a pay packet that would have made him one of the highest paid at the club.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "I think he's taken the safer option, to be honest.

"Here, he'd have been under the spotlight a bit more.

"With England, it would have been better for him.

"He's taken that option, and I wish him all the best."
