Ivan Toney ban updates — Striker placed bets on Newcastle United to lose while under contract with club

Ivan Toney could leave Brentford in £80m transfer, ex-England star claims

Former Three Lions forward Darren Bent reckons Toney can still make a big-money transfer at the end of the season.

And he even reckons clubs will be willing to pay up to £80m, despite Toney being out of action for two-thirds of a year.

Bent told talkSPORT: “You know what the bonkers thing is, though? I know he has been banned for eight months and he won’t feature until January, I think someone big will still get him.

“You know what Brentford might have to do, I know they have Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo…

“Say Chelsea come in with a massive offer for him, Brentford might have to take that money and replace him.

“That is half a season, done. I don’t think Brentford will be in relegation trouble but next season, it will be more difficult.

“They might have to take the £70m/£80m fee and replace him, he is going to be a big miss. You can’t cover the fact he will be a big miss.”
