Wolves sign Marcus Bent on loan
Tuesday 31 August 2010
Birmingham have allowed striker Marcus Bent to join Barclays Premier League rivals Wolves on a four-month loan deal.
Bent, 32, will boost Wolves' attacking options following the departure of Andy Keogh to Cardiff on a season-long deal.
"Marcus is an experienced striker who has played plenty of Premier League football and scored goals," said Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey.
"People still talk about whether we've got enough Premier League experience, and Marcus will add to that.
"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."
Bent has fallen down the pecking order at St Andrew's following the arrivals of Nikola Zigic and Matt Derbyshire.
He spent parts of last season on loan at Middlesbrough and QPR.
