The 24-year-old midfielder has entered the final year of his current deal at Villa Park.

A £6million signing from Leeds United in 2009, Delph has spent five years trying to establish himself in the Premier League.

His top-flight outings for Villa have increased steadily over the last three seasons, with Paul Lambert now considering the former England Under-21 international to be a key man.

Delph is delighted to have finally seen his potential unlocked and, despite the uncertainty regarding the ownership of Villa as Randy Lerner attempts to find a buyer, insists he remains fully committed to the cause.

He told a Q&A session with supporters: “I feel like I went missing for a few years and that’s not something I’m happy with.

“The owner has been brilliant. He’s always believed in me and every time I’ve seen him he’s been nothing but positive.

“I’d love to sign a new deal and am ready to talk, but it’s not up to me, so we’ll have to see.”

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
