Harry Redknapp has no regrets about off-loading Darren Bent to Sunderland in the summer, despite the start to the season he has made.

Bent makes his first return to White Hart Lane since his departure in the summer with eight goals to his name already this campaign.

He is the leading English goalscorer in the Premier League, but Redknapp insists there is no bad blood between the two of them, claiming that the transfer was in the best interests of everyone.

“Darren Bent scored goals for us and I had no problem with him.

“I think our chairman did a deal where it pushes up to £16million on appearances and goals, so it was a good deal for us and a good deal for Darren.

“He’s playing regularly for Sunderland and is becoming a big player in their team. he is now somewhere where he is able to play regularly and score goals and he’s shown what he can do. He’s a good player.”

Redknapp upset Bent after the home draw with Portsmouth in January, claiming “my missus could’ve scored that,” after Bent fluffed a sitter, whilst tensions were raised between player and club further after Bent’s Twitter rant at the board during the transfer negoatiations.

But Redknapp is not bothered by Bent’s form this season, or the claims that he made an error in allowing him to leave.

“It will never haunt me, whatever he does at Sunderland.

“What he has to do is let his football do the talking. he’s scoring goals so just get on with it. He has to keep scoring goals all year and get into the World Cup squad.”

  1. Yeah Harry you have no regrets over Bent but

    later you'll definitely regret over Taarabt

    & Dos Santos, even K.P.Boateng. Spurs are so

    determined to buy the so-called future Zidane

    or Beckham but TOO AFRAID to use them.

    What's wrong with Harry, Levy & management?

    Buying young talents and waste their career

    playing for minnow clubs on loan? Y'all end

    up 'play safe' and buy players who have solid

    playing background & forgot the young boys &

    simply left them behind.

    Boateng's gone, now Pav, Taarabt & Dos Santos

    in the waiting list for exit. Bought them &

    wasted most of their time playing with reserves?

    What about Bentley? I know his attempt at Beck's

    sorta glamour is not successful but is this the

    reason he's condemned down at the Spurs junk yard

    until you need him ONLY in the Cup games?

    Harry, please think of everybody AS A WHOLE.

    Not selecting your favourites & leave others

    out in cold. Here's what you need:-

    Crouch = constant footwork (too good with headers already)

    Bentley = more competitive games (regain confidence & skill)

    Santos = more competitive games (World Cup player,4godsake)

    Taarabt = more competitive games (he's good but you don't know)

    Bale = more freekick practice (we have no set-piece master)

    King = Better see a specialist (or Chinese physician)

    Woodgate = Hard core fitness training

    Keane = set-piece scoring practice

    Defoe = learn more how to steal a ball

    O'hara = BRING HIM BACK!!!
