Bent is August's Premiership pick
Charlton striker Darren Bent
Charlton striker Darren Bent has been named Barclay's Premiership player of the month for August, the first of the new campaign.

Bent joined Charlton in a 3m package from Ipswich and made an outstanding start for the Addicks.

The 21-year-old scored four goals to help Charlton win their opening three Premiership matches.

His goalscoring start to the season earned Bent a call-up into the England squad for the friendly against Denmark.

Bent opened his account on his Charlton debut with a brace in their 3-1 win at Sunderland on opening day.

He then notched the winner against Wigan, before weighing in with another as Charlton won 3-0 on the road again at Middlesbrough.

Jim Hytner, a member of the awards panel, said: "It's great to see a young English player make such a fantastic start in the Premiership.

"His direct style combined with electric pace is sure to unsettle defences throughout this season.

"It's been a real Roy of the Rovers start for Darren at Charlton."
