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

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.
