Villa boss Lambert seeks cash boost with Bent sale

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert hopes to boost his transfer kitty with the sale of Darren Bent.

The Express & Star says Turkish clubs Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce are both on the trail of the 30-year-old former England striker, which could give Villa a last-ditch pay-back in the club's most expensive outlay of the Premier League age.

Lambert needs every penny he can muster this summer, with owner Randy Lerner restricting spending as he tries to sell the club.
