AVTV exclusive: New recruit Benteke talks of fulfilling his dream

Christian Benteke's grasp of the language wasn't amazing but you didn't need to be a genius to work out his emotions as his grin said it all during his exclusive AVTV interview.

Benteke completed his four-year deal from Genk to Villa and immediately sat down with the club online television channel for an exclusive interview.

Benteke, sporting a huge smile, discussed his delight at the move and how his countrymen - Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany and Marouane Fellaini - had whetted his appetite for life in the Barclays Premier League.

The 21-year-old chatted about his attributes as a striker and what he can bring to the squad.

He discussed his thoughts on his new team-mates and the quality in the claret and blue camp.

Benteke told viewers about the events of the last few days as he desperately craved the move to B6.

He also chatted about the delight his debut in claret and blue will bring when he finally puts on the shirt of Villa.

Benteke completed the interview by talking about finally fulfilling his top-flight dream and his international hopes with Belgium.
