Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has rubbished reports suggesting Darren bent could move to Newcastle United.
Rumours on social networking site Twitter suggested the Villa board were ready to cash in on Bent.
Newcastle were mentioned in dispatches, however McLeish says the rumours are untrue.
"It's utter nonsense, rubbish,' said McLeish.
"It's not worth commenting on something that was on Twitter. It's a phenomenon of the modern world, Twitter and Facebook, and it's not my world.
"I think you can get any story in there. I'm sure there's a few beauties about me - just don't tell me!"
Bent is formerly of Newcastle's rivals Sunderland and left the club in controversial circumstances in January, with accusations he was seeking an increased pay packet.
Any move to Newcastle is likely to yield similar claims from Villa fans, who saw bent score twice against Norwich on Saturday.
