Bent, 32, bolsters Wolves’ numbers up front 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
Andrews after the arrivals of Nikola Zigic and Matt Derbyshire. He
spent parts of last season on loan at Middlesbrough and QPR.
