Hearing #AVFC still after Benteke. Not expecting him to play in Genk`s Europa League tie with Lucerne tonight

#avfc have interest in several midfielders – Spearing is one, for instance – but depends which one they can push over the line..

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
Our mate Christian Benteke has been named in the Belgium squad for their World Cup qualifier against Wales a week tomorrow. #AVFC

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
I know Lambert is only interested in ‘young and hungry’ and Berbatov is a bit of a fading force but would be a snip at £4m.

D-day for #AVFC in pursuit of Genk striker Christian Benteke. #AVFCstill want him, the player is keen but will Genk be reasonable?

Ian Taylor ‏@IanTaylor7
#benteke binned training?? If reports are true. Take it he wants to come to #avfc then??!!

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
The ball is in Genk’s court, #avfc have made an improved offer on their original one and would go a bit higher, but won’t be held to ransom

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
My understanding of the Benteke situation is that #avfc still want him, but if Genk continue to demand too much they will look elsewhere

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Signing Bennett and targeting Benteke to go with Bent. Is there a surplus of Bs Es Ns and Ts they are trying to shift from the club shop?

********

And on the new signing Joe Bennet:

Aston Villa FC‏@AVFCOfficial
Joe Bennett will wear the No.27 shirt. #AVFC

Ron Vlaar ‏@RonVlaar4
I would like to welcome Joe Bennett to #AVFC! Good luck and excited to have you in the team!!

Marc Albrighton ‏@RealMarc12
All the best to @joebennett27 in his Villa career! I look forward to playing alongside him!

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Apparently, new Villa left-back Joe Bennett models his his forward-thinking style of play on Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy #avfc
