Fulham have completed the signing of Darren Bent on a season-long loan from Aston Villa.
The 29-year-old England striker will hope to revive his career after slipping behind Christian Benteke in the pecking order at Villa Park.
Cottagers boss Martin Jol is delighted to have Bent at his disposal.
Jol said: "Darren Bent is a striker I have always admired. He has shown in the Barclays Premier League that he is composed and clinical in front of goal but, even if he is not scoring, he is involved in some good link-up play, creating opportunities for his team-mates.
"I'm delighted that he has joined us, he gives us pace up front and I am confident that he will add to our goals scored tally this season."
He becomes Jol's seventh summer signing following the acquisition of Adel Taarabt, Fernando Amorebieta, Derek Boateng, Sasha Riether, Ange-Freddy Plumain and Maarten Stekelenburg.
