Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew risks missing out on Aston Villa striker Darren Bent.

The Telegraph says Pardew is keen to offer him a fresh start on Tyneside but Newcastle only value Bent at around £5 million and are also aware they will have to offer him a substantial salary close to his current £65,000 a week package at Villa.

Fulham remains a possible destination for the 29-year-old, however, while Wolfsburg have also shown tentative interest.
