Delaney Wants Out.

Well, Delaney hinted at his unhappiness yesterday in an interview when he implied he didn't feel that he was in the managers plans at Aston Villa, today he has handed in a transfer request. He said recently: 'I'm a bit surprised but it's the manager's and the board's decision. If they want to go in a different direction then I don't mind. I am just in the air at the moment and not knowing what my future is. The club have got an option but that isn't going to help me and, in my eyes, I have the summer to work out where I am going to go.'

The 29 year old right back has been waiting to be offered a new contract - as his current deal ends in the summer - but it appears he feels that to secure a long term deal, he needs to leave Villa Park.

His agent Richard Rosser said: 'Due to Aston Villa’s indecision regarding a new contract for Mark Delaney, Mark has handed in a written transfer request which was submitted to the club on Thursday.'

Delaney has suffered a great many injuries, just recently both knee and groin problems and it appears that O'Leary's opinion is the club should wait and assess the Wales internationals fitness before committing to a new deal.

Delaney explained: 'I have been here for seven years and I would have liked it to have carried on, but if I am being honest, then I just can’t see it. We tried initially last year about a new contract and we have tried again recently but we have not had any response. I just wish someone would tell me that I am not required and I can start thinking about something else. It is quite sad because the club have been good to me, I have got to know a lot of people around here and I have been settled down.'

Blackburn have already been linked and another report suggests Delaney might seek a return to his former club Cardiff.

Great shame, if he had been able to remain fit, I'm sure he would have made a great captain for Villa, but he spends as much - if not more - time injured.
