Villa hero Benteke denies thinking he was joining London club!

Christian Benteke denies he thought Aston Villa were a London club when first signing!

The star has laughed off claims he only signed for Villa as he thought the Midlanders were based in London.

Benteke, who grew up supporting Arsenal, told the Mirror: "That's a mistake.

"When I came here, I knew a lot of Belgium players in London and Manchester. They explained to me about the country and I am very happy here."
