Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood says striker Christian Benteke should stay at the club to keep his regular place with the Belgian national team.
The 24-year-old is one of the most wanted players in the Premier League after a phenomenal season at Villa Park and will leave if a club meets his reported £32.5m buy-out clause.
"Benteke's made no indication that he wants to leave," Sherwood is quoted as saying by the BBC.
"Someone's got to meet that buy-out clause and if they don't it won't be considered because we don't want to lose him.
"I don't think he should be moving clubs before a European Championship.
"By playing for Aston Villa it hasn't hindered him being the first choice at Belgium, up to now.
"So to come here and score at the ratio in which he has scored, since I have taken over, if he ends scoring 20 or 30 goals next season he is probably playing for Real Madrid."
