Fulham will turn their attention to the striker if their bid to sign Sergei Rebrov from Tottenham Hotspur fails.

Bent told the EADT last week how we wanted to be back playing in the Premiership but hoped it would be with Ipswich next season.

Glenn Hoddle is desperate to shift Rebrov, who was a record £11m signing but has not played in the Premiership this season.

A loan move to Fenerbahce last week failed and Jean Tigana is keen to arrest Fulham's slide and find more goals.

Reports that Town have priced Bent out of the market by demanding £3m have little credence as the agent quoted no longer represents Bent and Ipswich have not had an offer to turn down as yet.

Blues' boss Joe Royle said: "Nothing has changed. We have had enquires in swaps but that is no use to us. As yet we have had no offers for any of our players."

Tigana has valued Bent at £1.5million but Ipswich want almost double that. The Fulham boss has been linked to the England under-21 striker on previous occassions but a deal has been out of reach so far.
