Watford have accepted an offer of £10m from West Ham United for winger Ashley Young, according to Monday's Daily Mail.

The Mail's story claims that the Watford board - who had admitted on Friday evening that they were mulling over a bid for Young from an un-named club, though to be West Ham United - decided to accept the massive offer following the Hornets' 3-0 defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.

Further, it is claimed that the two parties will meet in the early part of this week in order to thrash out terms.

Meanwhile, The Sun are reporting that Alan Curbishley is back in the hunt for Charlton's Darren Bent.

It is claimed that Curbishley is offering £4m plus Hayden Mullins and Marlon Harewood in exchange for the currently-injured striker.

Pardew, talking about Bent's future said:

"Itís difficult for Darren; Iím sure heís getting calls he shouldnít. But Iím just trying to keep him focused on Charlton.

"Letís not twist it ó I said Iím sure he is getting phone calls from people and Iím sure it is disturbing him - whether the calls are from friends or whatever."
