ASTON VILLA

Aston Villa top scorer Christian Benteke, 22, apparently plans to leave the struggling club at the end of the season for a £16million move to either Manchester City, Chelsea or Arsenal.

BIRMINGHAM

Birmingham could be offered goalkeeper Jack Butland on loan for all of next season, as well, despite selling him to Stoke last month, who want to keep Asmir Begovic as their No 1.
