BURTON Albion have signed striker Darren Bent on loan from Derby County until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old will bring both experience and a potent goal-scoring threat to Nigel Clough’s team.

The former England international joined the Rams in 2015 on a two-year deal following a successful loan spell. He has more than 100 Premier League goals and 13 caps for England to his name in an illustrious career.

Nigel Clough said: “When you get the opportunity to sign a player who has gone for nearly £60 million in transfer fees over the course of his career, with an excellent goal-scoring record and all the experience he has, then you know it will be a valuable addition to the squad.

“I know the chairman has worked very hard on the deal with Derby County.

“The experience Darren brings will also be a big help to the rest of the squad.”

Bent said: “Burton have impressed me this season even when they played against Derby there was one mistake and they got punished for it. I believe in this team, especially the manager and the direction the team is going.

"I want to thank the manager for bringing me in as I haven’t played much this season. He has showed a priority to get me to the football club and when someone has shown that desire to bring you in you have to say yes.”
