Villa’s Bent needs four more goals to bring up 100 milestone

England and Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is just four goals away from breaking the 100 Premier League goals barrier.

England and Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is just four goals away from breaking the 100 Premier League goals barrier.

Bent reached 96 top-flight goals when he notched his fourth and fifth goals of the season in Saturdays 3-2 win over Norwich City.

Villa's record signing told the club's official website: "The ball is flying across the box left, right and centre and when you are a striker the most frustrating thing in the world is when you are not getting chances.

"To be fair, with the games, more and more chances are coming and all I have to do is keep trying to take them.

"I've still got a few things I'd like to achieve, like 100 Premier League goals. I'm only four off it. Hopefully it's not too far away.

"Not too many people have done that and it is something I've dreamt about since I stepped into the top-flight with Charlton.

"That was an actual goal, to get into that 100 Premier League club because I've seen some of the best strikers in the world get into it."
