Newcastle, Everton alerted as Bent unsettled at Spurs

Darren Bent is unsettled at Tottenham.

The Mirror says Bent is ready to quit Spurs following the return of £15million love rival Jermain Defoe.

Bent is believed to be devastated at Defoe's return and would welcome the chance to resurrect his career at a northern club such as Newcastle or Everton.

Boss Harry Redknapp is believed to be willing to listen to offers for the former Charlton marksman.

Bent's relationship with some of his other team-mates at Spurs has also deteriorated.

It is understood some players were unimpressed at a lack of respect shown to Ledley King in a dressing-room incident last year after the club captain had returned from treatment in America.
