'Newcastle move better for Darren Bent'

Alan Pardew has told Darren Bent he would have more chance of going to the World Cup with England if he had signed for Newcastle.

Speaking to the Newcastle Chronicle, Pardew said that Bent, who joined Fulham from Aston Villa on a season-long loan, would have had a bigger platform for his talents at St James' Park than Craven Cottage.

"I think he’s taken the safer option, to be honest," Pardew said."Here, he’d have been under the spotlight a bit more.

"With England, it would have been better for him. He’s taken that option, and I wish him all the best."

Pardew is keen to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new Premier League season and the club continue to be linked with Marseille striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

They have already signed Loic Remy from QPR on a loan deal, and Pardew insists signing Bent was a real possibility.

He added: "For me as the manager, you’re not allowed to have contact with the player.

"I was having contact with his agent until the deal was done.

"I honestly thought he’d be looking at our challenge and finding that a bit tasty."
