A report claims that Christian Benteke is planning to depart Aston Villa if they fail to survive in the Premier League.

Christian Benteke has reportedly decided that he will leave Aston Villa if the club are relegated to the Championship.

The Belgian international has become one of Villa's key players since his summer switch from Genk, having found the net on 15 occasions in all competitions to become the club's top goalscorer.

However, should Paul Lambert's side fail to fight off the threat of demotion, the 22-year-old will seek another club, according to the Express & Star.

The report went on to claim that Benteke would consider an exit irrespective of whether Villa survive.

Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in the striker in recent weeks.
