Newcastle to make bid this week for Villa striker Bent

Newcastle United are expected to launch a bid for Aston Villa striker Darren Bent this week.

Toon chief Alan Pardew meets newly appointed Director of Football Joe Kinnear on Monday when they will run the rule over transfer targets, says the Daily Star Sunday.

And Pardew will tell him to move in for Bent, 29, who he has earmarked to play alongside Papiss Cisse next season.

The Villa outcast would jump at the chance of a return to the North East where he enjoyed a successful spell at arch-rivals Sunderland.
