Spurs are prepared to make a loss on Darren Bent and accept offers of around £12.5m, although there don't seem to be too many takers: Bent
Before anyone asks, I don't think taking him back on a loan for the rest of the season is an option. Spurs are not looking for a loan deal as they are hoping to fund other purchases and we probably couldn't afford his current wages. As various wags have pointed out, he would also have to fight for his place in the squad.
Quite how this affects our instalment payments from White Hart Lane I'm not sure, but we have sold on the Spurs debt anyway (see earlier story).
