Wolves sign striker Marcus Bent on loan from Birmingham

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has secured a loan move for striker Marcus Bent from fellow Midlands club Birmingham City.

McCarthy loaned forward Andy Keogh to Championship side Cardiff and 32-year-old Bent's arrival until 4 January will help bolster his attacking options.

"Marcus is an experienced striker," Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told the club's website.

"He has played plenty of Premier League football and scored goals."

Bent has struggled to force his way into the first-team reckoning at Birmingham and was loaned out to QPR and Middlesbrough last season.


"People still talk about whether we've got enough Premier League experience, and Marcus will add to that," added Moxey.

"He's also a different type of striker to what we have in that he's a physical presence.

"We needed someone after the departure of Andy Keogh and Marcus can do a job for us."
