Bio: Fabian Delph arrived at City having established himself as an integral member of the Aston Villa side where he had also taken on the captain’s armband…
By the time Delph joined City in July 2015, he’d also become part of Roy Hodgson’s England squad, winning six caps during the 2014/15 campaign.
He will wear the No.18 shirt for City, Delph began his senior career at Leeds United, making 50 appearances between 2006 and 2009.
In 2009 he was voted the Leeds United Young Player of the Year and Leeds United Players’ Player of the Year; he was also named in the PFA League One Team of the Year as well as winning the Football League Player of the Year to cap a memorable campaign for the Lilywhites.
Widely regarded as one of the brightest talents outside the Premier League, he moved to Aston Villa in 2009 for an undisclosed fee, aged just 19.
He initially found it hard to nail down a regular starting role at Villa and had a brief spell back on loan with Leeds United in 2012 before finally establishing himself at Villa Park during the 2012/13 campaign.
Thereafter, he became an integral member of the first team, being voted the club’s Player of the Year in 2013/14.
Having represented England at Under-19 and Under-21 level, he won his first full cap against Norway in September 2014 and after signing a new deal with the Midlands outfit in January 2015, he was handed the captain’s armband by new manager Tim Sherwood.
Delph made 128 appearances for Villa, scoring eight goals.
