Bent completes Wolves loan move

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.
