Aston Villa play-maker and England international, Fabian Delph has revealed he will not be signing a new deal at Villa Park as he looks to move on to bigger and better things according to the Telegraph.
The England midfielder has been offered a lucrative £50,000 a week deal to stay at the club for another four years, but it appears that Delph has his heart set on a move away from Villa. Spurs and Liverpool seem the immediate choices of destination for the 24-year-old. A player who enjoys attacking football, Delph would fit in to either set up with his composed, slick style of play.
The thought of another relegation threatened season seems to be the tipping point for Delph who has told Lambert he intends to leave in the summer. A player who will no doubt be one of the most sought after players in the market, Delph will be inundated with a multitude of options to further his career.
Delph signed for £6 million from Leeds in 2009, and initially struggled to adjust to life in the Premier League. Hampered by injuries and lack of first team experience, Delph was almost a forgotten man. However, a run of games and some expert performances rocketed Delph into the limelight and the England squad. Now considered one of Villa’s key players, the former Leeds United midfielder’s career has blossomed.
Currently nursing a shoulder injury, the 24-year-old has had to watch his side struggle from the sidelines in recent weeks and he won’t be best pleased with what he has seen.
Should Delph leave in the summer, who will he join?
