Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have been boosted in their attempts to sign Fabian Delph after he is believed to have rejected a new deal to continue his Aston Villa stay, Telegraph reports.
The 24-year-old declared his intentions to leave the club by refusing to extend his contract, which expires at the end of this season, pulling interest from a number of top clubs.
He is said to have been offered a £50,000-a-week deal, but has told Villa boss Paul Lambert that he is looking for a new challenge and is willing to leave in search of that.
If he doesn’t confirm his stay at Villa Park, the Reds, Spurs, along with Everton will be able to sign him up for free despite being named one of the side’s key player.
With the team now battling to avoid relegation, Delph could be on the move as he hopes to continue the great form which saw him earn an England call-up.
