Newcastle legend Shearer hands advice to Sunderland's Bent

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has offered words of advice to Sunderland striker Darren Bent.

Bent bumped in to the Newcastle legend, who he refers to as "Sir Alan" at a restaurant opening, and Shearer offered the former Spurs and Charlton star words of encouragement.

Bent, who keeps his fans up to day via Twitter, wrote: "The restaurant opening was cool. Alan Shearer gave me some nice words which was even better.

"When someone has scored 350+ goals and gives you advice you make sure you listen - and I did."
