West Brom striker Lukaku happy to lean on Villa's Benteke

West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku admits he's close to Aston Villa rival Christian Benteke.

The pair are part of the Marc Wilmots' Belgium squad and both moved to the West Midlands this season.

"We talk to each other often about the Premier League and how we can improve. We play for rival clubs, but we wish each other the best. In Belgium we also played for clubs who consider each other as rivals: I Anderlecht, he joined Standard," said Lukaku, who is on-loan at the Baggies from Chelsea.
