Metro have Manchester City fans looking up with astonishment on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the club are about to secure an £8 million move for Fabian Delph.
That comes after the player declared less than a week ago that he would not be leaving Aston Villa, and wanted to skipper them next season.
We don’t blame City for signing the player, who is of course home grown, but the fact of the matter is, Delph will probably spend most of his time on the bench and we can see why Villa fans are furious at the turn around the player has done.
One of our regulars quips that at least Delph will have Sterling to talk to on the bench!
Manchester City fans. Have you just signed another bench warmer or will Delph actually manage to make it in the first team? Let us know your thoughts below.
