Aston Villa have completed the signing of Belgium international striker Christian Benteke in a £7million move from Genk.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year contract after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

Villa had two initial bids rejected for Benteke but finally agreed a fee before the player flew into Birmingham this afternoon.
