Blues to get Bent?

It could be that Birmingham City have put an end to Cardiff City`s attempt to sign Charlton Athletic striker Marcus Bent.

The 30 year old was expected to sign for the Blueburds today but in a late twist to the tale, the following statement was placed on the Cardiff Website.

"Shortly before Marcus Bent was due to arrive for his medical and complete his move to Cardiff City, we were informed that he had changed his mind and asked Charlton Athletic for permission to speak to Birmingham City.

"Whilst at this stage we are unaware of whether he has been given permission to talk to Birmingham City, we only want players who are committed to Cardiff City Football Club and therefore have withdrawn from the deal.

James McFadden, Cameron Jerome, Kevin Phillips, Gary O'Connor and the possibility of signing Marcus Bent would mean we have five strikers on the books. Cameron Jerome has been the Championships top goal scorer before. Kevin Phillips also has fantastic experience and has been top of the charts before. We've got left winger Gary McSheffery who can also play as a striker and has been a top goal scorer.
