"Why can't anything be simple? It's so frustrating hanging around."
Darren Bent Quotes of the week

The former Charlton star does not fit into boss Harry Redknapp's plans and was thought to be on the verge of a £15million transfer to Sunderland.

But the move has stalled as Hull City and Stoke have shown an interest, and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to receive the £16.5m he paid the Addicks in 2007.

The delay in sealing his exit from White Hart Lane has angered Bent, who did not travel to the Far East with Tottenham for their participation in the Asia Trophy.

He said on his Twitter page: "Do I want to go to Hull City, no. Do I want to go to Stoke, no.

"Do I want to go to Sunderland, yes. So stop f*****g around, Levy."

He earlier wrote: "Why can't anything be simple? It's so frustrating hanging around doing jack s**t. Seriously getting p***ed off now."

Tottenham board member Donna Cullen told The Sun: "We have put calls in to Darren's agent. We are trying to establish whether the Twitter account is actually Darren's."
