Christian Benteke: Intends to be turning out in the Premier League for Aston Vil

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."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
