Christian Benteke: Expected to leave Villa Park this summer after submitted tran

Spurs already headed the betting on the Belgium striker's next club but have shortened from evens to 8/11 following Tuesday morning's developments.

Arsenal and Chelsea are considered next in line to land the 22-year-old at 7/2, followed by Liverpool (12/1) and Borussia Dortmund (20/1).

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Tottenham have consistently been the best-backed side in our market on Benteke's next club, which we opened at the end of last season with interest seemingly inevitable this summer given his impressive debut campaign in the Premier League.

"Our punters already seem to be looking at who Villa will turn to as Benteke's replacement, with Bobby Zamora backed in from 10/1 to 2/1 to move to Villa Park."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
