Delph keen on Leeds stay

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is hoping to stay with Leeds United for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Leeds until 25th February, but Leeds are keen to keep Delph for the rest of the season.

Delph made his second debut for Leeds in the victory over Ipswich on Saturday.

"That would be an absolute dream for me I get the nod to stay till the end of the season. If that happens, I'd be delighted," said Delph.

"These things don't come around quickly, you've got to build.

"Hopefully if we can keep going and the fans can stick behind us then we might end up in the Premier League.

"That's the sprit that we've got, the fans were all very vocal today and we just pushed on and kept going. We've got a never-say-die attitude, that's what came across (against Ipswich) and we just carried on going.

"I would like to be playing football and if I can play here I'll be delighted, because this is my home club and this is where I've always been happiest."
