Christian Benteke's agent has admitted he will decide the Aston Villa striker's future after the World Cup.

Benteke is tied to the Villans until 2017 after signing a £40,000-a-week contract extension last summer, but that came after agent Eric Kismet advised him to hand in a transfer request.

Now, as the 23-year-old gears up to play for Belgium in this summer's finals in Brazil, Kismet has said: “He wants to get ready for the World Cup. For the future, there is time. Currently it is too early to talk about it.”
