Aston Villa star, Fabian Delph, is set for a move away from Villa Park, but it may not be in the current transfer window.
Tottenham and Liverpool have shown interest in the English midfielder, whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
Delph is set to have turned down a £50,000 per week contract extension, in hope of making a move to a bigger club.
Aston Villa have insisted Delph will not be sold cheaply, but the Englishman is keen to wait until the summer to decide a club, rather than to sign in the current window. This decision looks to be motivated by Delph’s desire to play in Europe next season, and wants to wait and see which club can successfully qualify for Europe.
Spurs are looking to offer as little as £3 million for Delph, but may be willing to offload some unwanted players in a swap deal, to help influence Villa manager, Paul Lambert’s decision.
Liverpool are looking at Delph as a replacement for long-serving legend, Steven Gerrard, who recently announced his retirement after 25 years with the club.
The two clubs will battle it out to sign the midfielder in the current window, but if they fail to secure his signature this month, it will be a matter of European qualification that will influence Delph’s decision in the summer.
