Have your say

SUNDERLAND have confirmed that Darren Bent handed in a transfer request after yesterday’s Wear-Tyne derby.

The Echo understands that reports Bent is in the West Midlands looking to tie up the deal are not accurate and Sunderland will not consider letting the striker leave for anywhere near the £18m mark.
