Leeds Reject Delph Bid

Leeds Reject Delph Bid

Leeds United have announced on their official site that they have rejected two bids from Premiership clubs for starlet Fabian Delph.

Now ignoring the fact I still don't know who Fabian Delph is, I've seen plenty of talk on the forum about him and according to the rumour mill Martin O'Neill is hugely interested in adding the youngster to our ranks.

There is no confirmation that it is in fact Villa who have been knocked back, but given the fact the fight for Delph is said to be between us an Everton it doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two together and give me an excuse to run an article on it.

The statement on the Leeds OS reads:

'Leeds United can confirm that we have received offers direct from two Premiership clubs for Fabian Delph.

'The offers have been rejected.'

They also say that approaches (in the plural) have been made for Jermaine Beckford, but there is no suggestion we are involved in that either.

I'm sorry, but this really, really hacks me off. We are constantly allowing ourselves to be taken in by the rags, which are not far short of worthless as newspapers. For instance, Birmingham Mail web headline says - and I quote - "Aston Villa's bid for Fabian Delph rejected" and goes on to say that Villa have "had a bid for Fabian Delph rejected by Leeds United who have also confirmed they are in a straight fight with another Premiership club for the teenager. That's probably the end of the lies, as the article then goes on to say, a tad more truthfully, "A statement on the Yorkshire club’s web-site read: Leeds United can confirm that we have received offers direct from two Premier League clubs for Fabian Delph. The offers have been rejected." At NO POINT do Leeds United mention Aston Villa (or any other club). This is sheer two-plus-two rubbish made up by the Mail to sell newspapers - nothing more, nothing less.
