LONDON (AP) -- Fulham has signed England forward Darren Bent on a season-long loan deal from Aston Villa.

Fulham manager Martin Jol says he has always admired Bent. Jol adds that "he has shown in the Premier League that he is composed and clinical in front of goal.''

The 29-year-old Bent has scored more than 100 goals in the Premier League. He played under Jol at Tottenham and has also made 13 appearances for England, scoring four times.

Fulham begins its Premier League season away to Sunderland on Saturday.
