Darren Bent (born 6 February 1984- Tooting, London ) is a professional football player. Bent, a striker, plays for Charlton Athletic.

He was a product of the Ipswich Town youth academy and was the club's top goalscorer in the 2004/05 season (with 19 goals) and completed a £2.7 millon transfer to Charlton that summer after Ipswich failed to reach the Premier League for a third successive season. He was a prolific forward at Ipswich scoring 56 times in 116 games.

He has also represented England at Under-19 level with an impressive 8 goals in 12 appearances.

On August 13 2005, Bent had a dream debut at Charlton which saw him score a brace in the opening day of the Premiership playing against Sunderland. He was also called up to the England senior team for a friendly against Denmark on 17 August 2005 that same day.

He continued his scoring record, on August 20 2005 against Premiership virgins - Wigan Athletic, which ended in a 1-0 win to Charlton.

In August 2005 Bent was called into the full England squad for the friendly game in Denmark and the subsequent World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Northern Ireland. He also was named the Premiership Player of The Month.
