Former Everton striker Marcus Bent has been declared bankrupt in the High Court, capping a steady but spectacular fall from grace.

His court record confirms that he no longer plays professional sport.



Bent represented a host of clubs during a 17-year professional career and had successful spells playing in the Premier League with Crystal Palace , Blackburn, Charlton, Wigan and Leicester as well as the Toffees.



Bent made the decision to swap England for Indonesia in 2011 after being released by Birmingham City, claiming that he "no longer wanted to be based up north" away from his young family.

The former England U21 international spent the last years of his professional career playing in Indonesia for Mitra Kukar, but hasn't been registered at any club since leaving Southern Combination Division One side Wick in 2017.

And now he has been forced to declare insolvency, according to the public record, despite having once earned a salary topping out near the £1million-a-year mark.

The following year he was back in court, this time after being arrested for possession of cocaine at Chessington World of Adventures, where he received a fine.
