Leeds fan, if it turns out you get Delph, you've bought a quality footballer. Villa are by far and away my favourite prem team right now, im so pleased hes going to you rather than the thieves (spurs) or the riches (city)
The core of the team is ENGLISH just how it should be in an ENGLISH league.
Ive no doubt O Neil will be able to develop Delph well, even if he isnt a regular.
If the fee is £5million (reported £6million offers) that will go a heck of a way in getting us back to the prem. If anything the sale of Delph is good for us, our midfield was too weak with Delph and Kilkenny (both attack minded) and we dont have that rock in the middle. He was a luxury player i'd love to still have here, but to the team is not a massive loss
£5million would get us a DCM in, get us up through L1 and there would be plenty to spend on having a good first season in the championship
For the record, we have to buy Thorpe Arch back by october. This fee will not get us it back, we've had plans in the last few years to get this money without resorting to a wonderkid coming through ;)
goodluck next season,i hope to watch Villa and Delph do very well in the premiership :)
