Delph's Debut Claret and Blue Interview

Delph's Debut Claret and Blue Interview

Fabian Delph has spoken for the first time on the official site since his 'undisclosed' fee transfer from Leeds.

Speaking tonight Delph revealed that moving to Villa was an opportunity he couldn't resist given Martin O'Neill's desire and belief in young English talent, and his success in getting that talent recognised by Fabio Capello.

The 19 year old is also relishing the opportunity of turning out in the Premier League and making himself a household name.

'I'm absolutely delighted. It's a big step up but I'm looking forward to it and hopefully I can do well.

'I've managed to get the move here and I'm going to work my hardest and hopefully the gaffer will give me the opportunity to play.

'There are a lot of young English players here, an absolutely superb manager and this is the club I've chose to play for so hopefully I can do well.'

Sounds like he has his feet firmly on the floor and should fit right in if he can live up to his hype and potential.

Let's face it; MoN probably has an IQ test along with the medical for his signings. They all seem to be a cut above the average, and this lad appears to be no exception.

He's always seemed really grounded as you noticed yourself. Gutted to see him leave, but from the possible clubs I'm glad it's you/ I'm sure M'ON can develop him into something special.

The OS carries quotes from Delph saying that when he was shown around Villa Park he found it "mind blowing". Fabian - picture what its like when it's packed to the rafters and 40k Villans are willing you on....!!
