Crystal Palace striker Benteke: I must think about January market

Christian Benteke admits he's considering his future at Crystal Palace.

He has scored just four goals in his last 61 appearances for the club, but was handed a contract extension last month as Palace look to protect the value of one of their highest paid players.

“Playing for your club is always different from the (Belgium) national team. I hope the Cyprus game will give me my confidence back and give me the chance to score for Palace," Benteke told La Derniere Heure.

“But I also have to think about the January transfer window. I will give it some thought and I'll see what can be done.

“It is important to have playing time for your club, but what you do on national duty is also important.

“I really want to play at Euro 2020. I work like a madman every day with that target in mind."
