Bent to consider Spurs future in the summer

Click to follow

Darren Bent will ask to leave Spurs in the summer if his chances of playing are restricted for the remainder of the season. Bent scored his 11th goal in 20 league starts this season in Sunday's 1-0 win over Newcastle, with Fabio Capello watching from the stands. But he knows he may face a spell on the bench now that Jermain Defoe is fit, and he has warned manager Harry Redknapp that his future depends on how he is treated over the next five weeks. "No one likes to sit on the bench. I'll see what happens," Bent said. "The end of the season is coming and we'll have to see what happens then."
