Fabian Delph is currently Aston Villa’s best player in the League and with his contract expiring at the end of next season, there has been a lot of talk in regards to a new contract for Delph. Paul Lambert has said that the young Englishmen will have to wait. Lambert doesn’t want to ‘disturb’ Delph and want him to maintain his form. Lambert is happy with Delph’s current form but wants him to focus on this season rather than a new contract.
“He still has a good bit to go on his current contract. That will be something we look at down the line a little bit.
“At the moment he is enjoying his football and playing really well. There is no need for me to disrupt that.
“He is competing well against every opponent but he has to maintain that.” – Paul Lambert
I reckon Lambert is worried that a new contract may affect Delph’s form, it has already happened with Lowton, Westwood and Weimann. Making Delph wait, will do more good than harm. Obviously if Villa are getting enquires for Delph from other clubs. I strongly advise the Villa board to offer him a new deal before his head is turned.
