Emile Heskey: Benteke up there with the best
Wantaway striker Christian Benteke reported back for training with Aston Villa on Thursday, amid speculation regarding his future.
Villa confirmed last week that Benteke has asked for a transfer after his 19 Premier League goals last season helped the club avoid relegation.
Benteke missed Villa’s recent tour of Germany as he was given extended leave following his early-summer duties with Belgium, but he returned to training as requested on Thursday.
The forward signed for Villa from Genk last season for £7 million and his fine debut campaign in England has seen a figure of around £20 million touted as Villa's asking price for the player.
