Aston Villa striker Darren Bent says he want to knock off the 100-goal milestone as soon as possible.

The 27-year old has scored 91 goals in the Premier League with Ipswich Town, Charlton Athletic, Tottenham and Sunderland and is looking to bring up the ton with Villa prior to Christmas.

"I'm still targeting goals. I still want to get in the Premier League 100 goals club and I'm nine away now," he said.

"Hopefully if I can chip away at that next season and get that as quickly as possible then I'll be over the moon.

"If I can get it by Christmas time then I'll be delighted. That's my aim, that's my focus and I'm determined to do it."
