Villa drop price for Newcastle target Bent

Aston Villa have dropped their asking price for Darren Bent.

The Sunday Sun says the Midlands club would now be prepared to accept in the region of £6m for the 29-year-old striker, a whopping £2m reduction off their original asking price.

This might still not be enough of a discount to tempt Newcastle United, but this move is at least a sign that Villa are willing to compromise having failed to receive a single bid during the first week of the transfer window being opened.
