At the start of play on Thursday all the papers were reporting Darren Bent would be joining West Ham in a whopping £17m deal.

A few hours on however and Spurs are believed to be trying to hijack the deal. It is thought Bent would favour a move to Spurs to form a partnership with hit man Berbatov.

Whatever happens Spurs will need to match West Hams bid and then it will most likely come down to a wages war for the player.

Charlton look to have accepted they need to sell Bent and now there looks to be a bidding war with millions of pounds being thrown around.

Expect lots more of twists and turns to follow, Liverpool are still watching closely.

  • bent is not worth more than 10m, West Ham can have him if they want to spend 17m and 75k a week – what a waste of cash

  • Not a bad player but West Ham are welcome to him at the prices being thrown about. There’s much better for £17 mil.

  • I’m suprised Newcastle don’t offer 20mil + 100k a week – they like wasting money

  • Spurs may fund the move by selling Defoe for £12m+ and therefore net outlay is less than £5m.. 17 is too much bit lessens the blow..

  • Fair play to Charlton we are getting a great deal. I agree its big money but his goals scored record in the prem is very good over the two seasons hes been here. £12mill would be a fair price but all transfers will go up with the extra tv cash. Pay up or put up West Ham are throwing money around like its going out of fashion mugs.

  • 18 mills snap there arms off pards that has to be sale of the summer from a championship club.

  • S ****horpe at home your point? We are only on holiday to the championship for a year.
