Marcus Bent joins Mitra Kukar
Indonesian side Mitra Kukar have snapped up former Everton and Blackburn striker Marcus Bent on a one-year deal.
Bent has played for 13 different English clubs over his 16-year-career, including Crystal Palace, Birmingham and Wigan. However, he has now opted to join Mitra Kukar, who were third in the Liga Indonesia Premier Division last season and have former Cameroon international Pierre Njanka on their books.
Club manager Aji Ari Junaidi said on the club's official website: "We have signed Bent for a year or one season of competition. The choice of Marcus Bent is a recommendation from the coach Simon McMenemy."
Bent has played 570 games and scored 110 goals in his career.
