Newcastle push Villa to drop Bent price

Newcastle United are pushing Aston Villa to drop their asking price for Darren Bent.

The People says Newcastle want Bent but won't pay the £6million fee.

And the former England striker - who married fiancee Kirsty yesterday but is heading for divorce with Aston Villa - will have to lower his demands of a four-year deal on £75,000 a week.

Newcastle are prepared to pay a nominal fee for Bent, who had one of his most productive scoring spells under Alan Pardew at Charlton, and will offer the 29-year-old a two-year deal.
