Darren Bent has brushed off criticism of his hefty price tag following his £16.5million transfer to Tottenham.

The England striker´s move from Charlton was confirmed yesterday for a fee that eclipses by £500,000 that for Arsenal legend Thierry Henry´s switch to Barcelona.

But Bent told BBC Radio Five Live: "To be fair I think Barca got Thierry on the cheap as I´d have put him in the £30million bracket, so it´s surprising he went for so little money."
