Delph to decide against Aston Villa stay

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is willing to run down his contract with the club amid interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Tottenham, according to Goal.com.

The former Leeds United player will reach the end of his current contract next summer, and has rejected a new deal at Villa Park which would have seen him earn £50,000 per week. As a result, it now appears likely that Delph could leave for nothing once the season comes to an end.

Martin O’Neill brought him to Villa in 2009 after he impressed in his debut season in the first-team at Elland Road. His first few years at the club were dogged by a succession of injuries, but consistently impressive performances over the past 18 months in particular have seen him become a part of the England national team, earning four caps.

The 25-year-old is said to be looking to move due to Villa’s failure to make inroads towards the top half of the Premier League and to give himself a better chance of maintaining his England place for Euro 2016. Bids from the likes of Liverpool and Spurs are expected in January, but Delph would prefer to wait until the summer to assess his options.
