Darren Bent is currently or has in fact had his medical at Fulham. This was confirmed in the morning by Palace boss Holloway, he had admitted that he expect Bent to join Palace, however on Thursday morning he announced that he was in fact heading to Craven Cottage. This made Jol very unhappy that Holloway simply ‘announced’ that Bent was close to joining Fulham. Even Paul Lambert has commented on Bent’s transfer to Fulham.
“He’s just away down to Fulham,” said Lambert. “I think it’s well-documented now that he’s down there having a medical and that’s the last I’ve heard.”
“There’s never (been a spat),” he said. “Not one cross word. I don’t know where people get that from. There’s never been a cross word. That’s football.”
The only un-known thing is what sort of detail. Some reports claim that Bent is set to join Fulham on a season-long loan, and some believed that Bent would be heading to Fulham for a £5 million bid. But the deal is rumoured and most likely a season-long loan with a view of a permanent deal.
