Aston Villa are ready to upgrade Christian Benteke's contract.

The Mirror says Benteke will be offered a bumper pay rise to stay at Aston Villa if they avoid relegation.

Tottenham are at the front of the queue to sign Benteke at the end of the season, ahead of north London rivals Arsenal and Villa's opponents tomorrow night, Manchester City. Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid have now also upped their interest, taking the number of clubs chasing Benteke to six.
