West Ham reject Tottenham's Bent

West Ham United won't consider bidding for Tottenham striker Darren Bent in January.

The Daily Mail says it is understood that despite West Ham's lengthy injury list - 13 senior players missed Saturday's 2-1 win at Middlesbrough - they have no intention of making an offer.

Bent, whose first-team opportunities have been limited at Spurs, would welcome a switch to east London.

But his decision to spurn the Hammers in favour of a £16.5million move from Charlton to White Hart Lane has not been forgotten and the Hammers are looking at an alternative plan.
