Bent apologises for Twitter outburst

Tottenham striker Darren Bent has apologised for posting “inappropriate comments” about club chairman Daniel Levy on his Twitter page.

The England man criticised Levy on the social networking site, accusing him of holding up his proposed move to Sunderland.

Bent said: “I appreciate that transfers are seldom straightforward and are often complex. However, after a long period of waiting following my withdrawal from the plane to China, I had become incredibly frustrated by the time these things take and I posted inappropriate comments on my Twitter site.”

Tottenham won the Barclays Asia Trophy after beating Premier League rivals Hull 3-0 at Beijing's Workers' Stadium.
