Bent delighted with first six months at Aston Villa

Former Sunderland striker Darren Bent is delighted with the way his move to Aston Villa has panned out.

Bent netted nine times in 16 games for Villa and carried that form into the international arena with his goals against Denmark and Wales after breaking his duck in the autumn against Switzerland.

He said: "A lot of people, when I made the move, were questioning if it was the right decision.

"I always knew in my head it was the right decision for me and my performances for Villa have been good.

"I've managed to get goals and my England career has picked up as well. For me, it was the perfect move at the right time."
