​DONE DEAL: Ex-England international Bent in Burton loan

Championship Derby County's former England striker Darren Bent has joined Burton Albion on loan until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in a pre-season friendly against Port Vale and has not played a first-team game for the Rams this term.

Manager Nigel Clough said Bent's experience will be a "big help" as the Brewers battle against relegation.

"When you get the opportunity to sign a player who has gone for nearly £60 million in transfer fees over the course of his career, with an excellent goal-scoring record and all the experience he has, then you know it will be a valuable addition to the squad," Clough said.
