Asked about the forthcoming future of Belgian international striker Christian Benteke (26), linked to a move out from Crystal Palace after just half a season (possibly in order to join Chinese Super League), Eagles manager, Sam Allardyce, stated: "Unless the chairman knows any different from me, Christian Benteke is not for sale. I think he'll be available for this weekend. I'm planning on him being here at the end of this window. He's scored eight goals already, and he's got a big part to play". Former Liverpool and Aston Villa player is currently on a deal with Selhurts Park side until June 2020.
