Michael Owen believes Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is one of the signings of the summer.

The 22-year old Belgian international joined Villa from Genk in the summer and has become one of the top three players, along with Swansea City's Michu and Manchester United ace Robin van Persie, to move to new clubs according to the Stoke City striker.

"I'm seriously impressed with Benteke. What a player. Michu, Van Persie and Benteke are the signings of the season so far in my opinion," he posted on Twitter.
