DELPH’S FAB FOR ROY
PAUL LAMBERT reckons Fabian Delph has an outside chance of making Roy Hodgson’s squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
The midfielder, 23, has made a storming start to the season on the back of a good end to last term.
Delph (left) arrived at Villa for £6million from Leeds in August 2009 billed as one of the country’s hottest properties – yet the former England Under-21 ace’s time has been blighted by injuries.
Asked about Delph’s chances of a call-up from Three Lions chief Hodgson, Lambert, whose team host Rotherham tonight, replied: “I’ll let England worry about England.
“My job is to worry about Fabian and Aston Villa, but the way he’s playing you never know.
“I’m pretty sure there’s more to come from him. The way he has started the season is great. If we keep him fit and healthy, the way he is playing, it’s up to himself how far he goes.”
Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart says they could sign three players before the transfer deadline.
He said: “Manager Steve Evans wants what I want and that’s success.
“Talks are going on behind the scenes and I would say there is a 75-85 per cent chance that we will get someone in.”
