Darren Bent: Burton Albion sign Derby's former England striker on loan
Derby County's former England striker Darren Bent has joined Burton Albion on loan until the end of the season.
The 33-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in a pre-season friendly against Port Vale and has not played a first-team game for the Rams this term.
He scored 13 goals in 42 appearances last season, earning a one-year contract which runs out in the summer.
Manager Nigel Clough said Bent's experience will be a "big help" as the Brewers battle against relegation.
Burton are bottom of the Championship and lost their last league game 6-0 away against Fulham.
"When you get the opportunity to sign a player who has gone for nearly £60 million in transfer fees over the course of his career, with an excellent goal-scoring record and all the experience he has, then you know it will be a valuable addition to the squad," Clough said.
The ex-Ipswich Town, Charlton Athletic, Tottenham, Sunderland and Aston Villa forward scored four goals in 13 games for England.
