Aston Villa may lose influential midfielder Fabian Delph this January, as the man who becomes a free agent in the summer could leave for Tottenham Hotspur. According to the Daily Mirror, Spurs are set to offer $5 million for the England international in January, which is a derisory offer for an England international. However Villa could lose Delph for nothing, so maybe they should cash in on the combative midfielder they bought from Leeds United for $12million back in 2009. Delph, 25, would be a great buy for any top 10 team in the Premier League.
