He might try it, but if i was in charge he would honour his contract or spend 3 years in the reserves.

Dont think financially we could do with him sitting there doing nothing and then let him go

I doubt it would come to that, but even if it did he's unlikely to be on a big contract.

Still i'm just saying what i would do, we own his contract and i see no advantage in letting him go this summer, and even less of an advantage in allowing players to take the p*ss.

Seem's i'm the only one who would tell citeh to go f*ck themselves, the lad has over 3 years left on his contract.

If i was in charge my reasoning would be something like this, if we go down he would be our best chance of coming straight back up so i would promise him that if he performs for me in the championship and at the end of the season we were not promoted i would let him go for the right amount.

If we were promoted after one year down there we would need him back in the prem, players like him are hard to come by.

And if we do stay up this season the last thing we need to be doing is weakening the squad even more, so he would be told to bide his time, stay here and play regularly to improve his game because he's not going to improve sat on the bench at citeh. And then maybe at the end of next season if he's improved as a player and a top 4 club want him i would let him go, no player exchanges just money. And any offer under £30 million will be laughed at.

See I would also say f*ck off BUT that wouldn't happen at the villa so I think anything upwards of £25m and the fans wouldn't be too upset

It's quite simple ,, if he says he wants to go ,, let him

Agree.

I'm not into pandering to players who's ego's bigger than the club.

Saying that, Benteke doesn't come across as the big ego, so we might / hopefully be pleasantly surprised

Never argue with an idiot. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

Lambert described him as a gentle giant, a really nice guy off the pitch. But, he did go on strike at Genk to force his move through, so I wouldnt put it past him to do it again at Villa. I doubt he is on big wages here so letting him rot in the reserves wouldnt be such a huge loss financially, but then again, with the money we could possibly get for him, we could buy 2 or 3 very decent players who want to earn their stripes. Its a bit of a double edged sword tbh, however, he hasnt asked to leave (yet) and there isnt any concrete interest from any other clubs (yet) so he could want to honour his contract because we are the ones who have given him his time to shine. I hope thats the case

He's a gun for hire. We have him contracted to us for a few years, if someone wants to buy out that contract for a large premium, meh, we get another gun for hire. I'm sick of hoping for loyalty.. There's no such thing in football. His goals will keep us up, his price tag will allow us to move forward.. Great business by Lambert.

He is under contract simple.

Any approach made for him would be against premier league rules. If he goes on strike he has broken his contract so wouldnt get paid, simple.
