Benteke to be offered new Villa deal

Sky Sports understands that Christian Benteke is set to be offered a new contract by Aston Villa.

The Belgium international’s form towards the end of the 2014/15 campaign has seen him linked with a move to a number of clubs though Villa are unsurprisingly keen to secure his services.

There is a £32.5m release clause in the striker’s current contract meaning that should an offer of that magnitude come in, the Midlands club could be powerless to prevent him leaving.

Since arriving in England in the summer of 2012, the 24 year old has racked up ninety-nine appearances in all competitions, scoring forty-nine goals, with his last outing coming in last month’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.

The former Genk and Standard Liege man has also scored seven goals in twenty-one caps for his country, though injury prevented him from attending last summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
