Former Aston Villa striker Tony Cascarino has urged the club to cash in on Christian Benteke if he wants to leave.
Villa remain hopeful that the 24-year-old Belgium international, who reportedly has a £32.5million buy-out clause in his current contract, will sign a new deal amid speculation that Manchester United and Liverpool could launch bids to land him this summer.
The former Republic of Ireland international told the Express and Star: "You're fortunate to play for clubs like Villa and I believe if the player doesn't want to be there, then you have to look elsewhere.
"I don't like keeping players who don't want to play for you. I'm not convinced clubs are sure at £32million.
"He came back after injury and looked a shadow of the player for six months. He looked nowhere near the Benteke that ripped teams apart and took on teams on his own at times, and then he got back into the fold once Tim got the job and looked the Benteke of old.
"But that's only over a four-month period."
