Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is expected to complete a move to Premier League rivals Newcastle United in the coming days.
Bent has been frozen out at Villa Park under boss Paul Lambert and is set to depart this summer.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has indicated that he expects his side to push ahead with a move for an unnamed player this week, and it is believed that Bent is the target he has in mind.
Villa are keen to get Bent off the wage bill and Newcastle are expected to submit a bid in the region of £5million before the end of the week.
