The Spurs striker has almost secured a move to the Stadium of Light...
Bent is one of many Spurs players whose future is in doubt as Harry Redknapp looks to trim his squad, especially with Tottenham reportedly in the market for strikers.
According to The Sun, Bent has opened talks with Sunderland, and Steve Bruce is set to bring the striker to the Stadium of Light for around £10 million. That would represent a loss for Spurs, who signed him for more than £16m two seasons ago.
Bent has scored 24 goals in 77 appearances for Tottenham.
