Villa striker Benteke "months ahead of schedule"

Christian Benteke is streets ahead in his recovery from a serious Achilles injury.

The Sun says Benteke has given Aston Villa a massive pre-season boost by targeting a September comeback - months ahead of schedule.

It was feared the Belgian striker would struggle to play again in 2014 after rupturing his Achilles tendon in training at the start of April.

But such has been his progress that it looks likely he'll be back in training before the season kicks off.
