The 30-year-old had fallen out of favour with manager Paul Lambert at Villa Park and was subsequently signed by his former Tottenham boss Martin Jol on a season-long deal.

Bent netted on his Fulham debut - a 3-1 defeat at home to Arsenal - but managed to hit just six goals in all competitions as the Cottagers were condemned to relegation.

The former England striker was often used as a substitute and he admits that his time in London did not turn out as he initially hoped.

"I've enjoyed my time down here but obviously it hasn't gone well. I haven't played as much football as I would have liked," he told the Express and Star.

"When I first came here I hoped it was going to be a case of playing fairly regularly, but it just wasn't meant to be."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
