Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is reportedly acquitted on charges of carjacking.

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke has reportedly been cleared of carjacking charges, which relate to an incident last year.

The 21-year-old was originally accused of assaulting a motorist with two other men and making off with the individual's car. However, a criminal court in Liege is believed to have acquitted the forward, according to Belgian newspaper HLN.

It is understood that Benteke has been let off on the grounds that he was unknowingly involved in the carjacking incident.

Benteke signed for Villa from Genk in the summer.
