Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke 2/1 to stay at Villa Park this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Christian Benteke to stay with Aston Villa
Odds: 2/1 @ Ladbrokes
Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke has been linked with a move away from the club for well over 12 months, with Liverpool and Tottenham having been mentioned as potential suitors for the Belgian international. However, as the summer transfer window wears on, no approaches are being made for Benteke, and Aston Villa are force to continue their pre-season preparations with him in the side, which increases the likelihood that he will remain at Villa Park for the new campaign.
The 24-year-old has impressed for the Villans ever since his arrival in 2012, and last season he was instrumental in keeping the Midlands side above the drop zone. Under new manager Tim Sherwood, he scored 11 goals in his last 11 league appearances, and was being tipped to make the move from Villa Park in the summer. Benteke has hit double figures for league goals in each of the his seasons in the Midlands, and he’s always been keen to join a side in the upper reaches of the table, but Villa’s lofty asking price has seen interest scarce.
Ladbrokes are giving odds 2/1 for Benteke to stay at Aston Villa in the summer transfer window as a result of no bids having materialised ahead of the new season. The Villans continue their pre-season training, and have their annual tour to come, with Benteke set to be a part of the side.
