Villa boss Lambert has Castaignos, Finnbogason on radar

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is ready to return to the Eredivisie for a replacement for Christian Benteke.

The Sunday Mirror says Villa want £25million from Tottenham for Benteke, 22, but Spurs think that is unrealistic and are set to make a £20m bid this week.

Lambert has a list of ­replacements for Benteke, including FC Twente's Luc Castaignos and Alfred Finnbogason of Heerenveen.
