Liverpool chief Comolli: We considered Villa signing Bent

Liverpool chief Damien Comolli admits former Sunderland striker Darren Bent was considered this month.

Comolli admitted they did consider Bent before his £18million-plus transfer to Aston Villa but decided he was not the right fit.

"We thought of him, but we looked at his profile and thought that he would not be very complementary to Fernando Torres," he said.

"He is a player who is, as the English say, a lone wolf. He needs to play alone in attack."
