Fabian Delph has his heart set on a move away from Aston Villa next summer…
England international midfielder Fabian Delph has decided to leave Aston Villa at the end of the season, and is hopeful of landing a move to either Liverpool or Tottenham Hotspur.
Reports on Goal.com claim that Delph will assess his options at the end of the season rather than change clubs in January, but has ruled out the possibility of signing a new contract.
The midfielder has rejected Villa’s offer of a new deal worth £50,000-a-week and the Midlands club are resigned to losing him in the summer. Delph is likely to be the subject of bids in the January transfer window but the player would prefer to wait.
Tottenham and Liverpool are among the clubs closely monitoring his situation and Delph would welcome the chance to join either club after making his international breakthrough earlier this year.
Delph has become a key player for Villa under Paul Lambert, and a down-spiral in the club’s form co-insides with the dislocated shoulder that has left the 25-year-old sidelined in recent weeks.
Villa are again struggling in the lower reaches of the Premier League – they currently sit 16th in the table – and a high-profile transfer could boost Delph’s chances of cementing his place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016.
