PAUL LAMBERT has warned Christian Benteke he'll be taking a big risk by quitting Aston Villa.

Villa have slapped a £30m price-tag on the striker, who is wanted by Arsenal, Spurs and Atletico Madrid.

Benteke, 22, hit 23 goals in his debut season and Lambert told him he's better off continuing to learn his trade at Villa.

The Villa boss said: "If you take that gamble to move to one of these huge clubs, then you might not play as many games.

"Footballers want to play. If they're hungry enough, then that's half the battle. The pressure on a young player moving is high.

"He's still a young lad learning the game and developing into a man."

Villa defender Nathan Baker, 22, last night signed a new three-year deal.
