Benteke sees future at Villa

The agent of Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke claims his

client has no intention of pushing for a summer switch.

With the Belgium international having taken the Premier League

by storm during his debut season in England, it has been speculated

that his stay at Villa Park could last just 12 months.

Villa are scrapping to preserve their top-flight status and a

number of their rivals are said to be keeping a close eye on

Benteke and his possible availability.

The 22-year-old is, however, happy with his current employers

and his representative sees no reason why they should be exploring

other options.

Eris Kismet said in the Sunday Mirror: “I keep hearing that

Christian dreams of playing for different clubs.

“But why dream when he is living a fantastic reality at Aston

Villa? He is certainly not thinking about leaving.

“It is always impossible to predict the future, but at the

moment I am 99 per cent certain Christian will start next season

with Aston Villa in the Premier League.

“Paul Lambert, the club and the fans have all been very good to

Christian and that means a lot to him.”
