Benteke staying at Villa... Says his agent

Clint Hughes

With the Belgian hit man still recovering from injury, a move away from B6 looks unlikely.

A few months ago, it looked like Christian Benteke would be moving on to bigger and better things (clubs) this summer, probably after firing Belgium to the semifinals of the World Cup. Unfortunately, when he ruptured his Achilles tendon in training this spring, thoughts of a move were put on hold. Kismet Eris, the notorious agent of the focal point of Villa's attack, went out and said that Benteke wouldn't be moving this summer. Then again, last summer, he said that Benteke would be moving, only to see the striker get a pay hike (and earn more money for himself, of course).

From what it looks like, Benteke should be back sooner than the original 6-9 month recovery period that had been bandied around. If he can come back anytime before January, it would be huge for the Villans, somewhat similar to getting a player on a free transfer, if you discount the fact that you have been paying his wages for over half a year when he was recovering. With manager Paul Lambert set to have a tight summer budget, the claret and blues will have to hope everyone stays injury free next season.
