Liverpool have been linked with a January move for Aston Villa striker Darren Bent. It is no secret that we need another striker to bring in more goals for the club.

But Aston Villa have come out and said that they have not heard from Liverpool about Bent.

“We’ve not heard a thing from Liverpool,” said McLeish. “I’m aware of the speculation.

“But there has been no contact with this club and I think you’ve had three parties telling you that.

“But, even if there was contact, we would not entertain that (selling Bent).

“We wouldn’t want to entertain selling our top scorer of last season. He is a prolific marksman.”
