Our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern want as much good news as possible right now and, as quoted by The Evening Standard, Christian Benteke has offered up just that.
Palace have had a poor season so far and if they do not buck their ideas up fast they could be playing Championship football next year.
That seems almost unthinkable given some of the talent they have available to them with the big Belgian striker certainly near the top of that list.
His power up top has come in handy quite a bit already this season but you feel it’s going to be even more crucial over the coming months so to hear that he is happy at the club is surely the best thing the Palace punters could have got.
The former Aston Villa striker hinted at wanting to stay in saying:
“I am very happy here and I want to fight to help the team to move up the table.
“We deserve it with the players that we have got. Now we have to show it on the pitch.”
The striker has been in positions like this before with the likes of Aston Villa who he helped avoid the drop during his time there.
And, according to our landlord, if he is happy at Palace that means he’ll keep firing and that should see the Eagles safe this season.
