Charlton stand firm on Bent price
Darren Bent
Bent is one of the summer's hot transfer targets
Charlton have warned prospective suitors that they will not move on their valuation of striker Darren Bent.

Bent turned down a move to West Ham after Charlton accepted a 17m bid for the 23-year-old England striker.

Tottenham have reportedly offered 13m and Liverpool have also been linked but chief executive Peter Varney insists Charlton will not budge.

"We've a valuation and we will not sell for less than that, other bids have not met our valuation," said Varney.

Bent turned down a move to Upton Park in the hope of Spurs or Liverpool making a move for him.

But Varney told the South London Press that unless Charlton get their asking price, Bent will be playing in the Championship next season with the relegated Addicks.

Varney said: "West Ham matched our valuation and that was why they were given permission last week to speak to Darren.

"No other club has managed that and as things stand Darren will be staying with Charlton. He is our player and under contract to us."
