A natural goalscorer, Darren Bent has regularly netted at each of his six clubs.

Bent joined Villa from Sunderland in January 2011 for a club record fee.

In the earlier stages of his career, he was part of the Ipswich Town academy and progressed to the first-team, scoring 48 goals in 122 appearances.

A lucrative move to Charlton followed and his Athletic career started with a bang, with his performances earning him the Premier League's 'August Player of the Month' accolade.

Bent scored in his first four games for the club, one of only six players to perform this feat in the top-flight.

Bent was the highest scoring Englishman in the Premier League in the 2005-06 season, with 18 goals (22 in all competitions) and he picked up Charlton's Player of the Season award.

Despite his best efforts, and finishing the club's top scorer, Charlton were relegated and the forward moved to Tottenham before venturing north to Wearside where he spent two years at Sunderland.

He quickly proved his worth in claret and blue, scoring on his debut in a 1-0 win over Manchester City.

He ended his first season with nine goals in 16 appearances and was joint highest goalscorer despite only joining for the second half of the season.

Injury blighted his second and first full campaign in B6 but he still finished as Villa's top scorer with 10 goals in 25 appearances.

In August 2013, Bent returned to London for a season-long loan at Fulham.

He scored an injury time equaliser at Old Trafford and made 30 appearances for the relegated side.

Bent returned to B6 at the start of the season and is now at Derby until the end of the campaign.
