Bordeaux rival Aston Villa for Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke

Bordeaux have approached Crystal Palace about Christian Benteke.

The Ligue 1 giants want to take Benteke on-loan for the remainder of the season, says L'Equipe.

Palace are willing to release the Belgium international, though his personal terms could prove an obstacle for Bordeaux.

Aston Villa are also in talks for Benteke but are facing a similar problem.

If the centre-forward is to get a loan move away, he will have to accept a pay-cut to get the deal done.
