Fulham have lodged a second bid for Aston Villa forward Darren Bent, according to reports.

According to several national newspapers, the Cottagers are said to have made a £5million offer for the former England striker, who has fallen out of favour at Villa Park following the emergence of Christian Benteke.

Bent has two years remaining on his contract and Fulham would look to play him alongside Dimitar Berbatov.
