Bent turns to Charlton

LONDON: Striker Marcus Bent moved from Everton to Charlton on Tuesday on a $3.5 million transfer. Bent, 27, has been used sparingly this season at Everton, where he has scored only one goal. He was the team’s No 2 scorer last season, when Everton reached the Champions League. “Charlton are a team I’ve always looked at with high regard,” he said. “I can’t wait to get started and am really looking forward to it.” — AP
