Villa boss Lambert adamant Benteke will stay

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists they won't lose Christian Benteke in the summer.

The £25million-rated Belgian, 22, is suspended for the final game of the season at Wigan.

If the Latics win their last two games, Villa will be relegated if Sunderland take a point at Spurs.

But boss Lambert said: "Christian is just starting on the ladder. He's been saying he's really happy here, so I've left it at that."
