Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has undergone successful surgery to repair the ruptured ankle ligaments which wrecked his dreams of being part of England's Euro 2012 squad.

Bent suffered the setback during the Barclays Premier League match at Wigan nine days ago.

The former Tottenham and Sunderland player will be able to resume training in around three months - just as England start their campaign in Poland and Ukraine.
