Tottenham striker Darren Bent wants a move to West Ham United.

The 23-year-old has started just seven matches this season with a further seven appearances as substitute.

There had been rumours that Bent was reluctant to rejoin Hammers boss Alan Curbishley who had been his manager at Charlton.

But, according to the Daily Star, he wants Curbishley to give him a second chance to join the Upton Park club.

The Hammers manager is known to be in the market for a new striker due to injury concerns over Craig Bellamy and Bobby Zamora but much will depend on Tottenham's willingness to take a loss on their £17million outlay.
