Leeds fans split over reported interest in Everton midfielder Fabian Delph

Leeds United are reportedly interested in a deal for Everton midfielder Fabian Delph – and the speculation has received a mixed response from some of the club’s supporters on social media.

The Daily Star reports that Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa is keen on signing the 30-year-old, as well as looking at Tottenham’s Danny Rose to try inject some top-flight experience to his squad ahead of next season.

It is claimed that the Whites are ‘confident’ of securing a deal for Delph, who started his senior career at Elland Road after rising through the academy.

The report explains that the Everton enforcer is likely to cost around £5million, which seems a bargain for a two-time Premier League winner.

Delph has seen his form dip since joining Everton last summer, but was an important squad player at the Etihad Stadium for Man City and has made 20 senior international caps for England.

He is a left-footed central midfielder renowned for his aggressive approach in tackling, plus he’s a strong passer of the ball too and has leadership qualities.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media feel his experience would be welcomed next season in the Premier League, while others have suggested the club should stay clear of their ex-player.

Bielsa has a young group of players that could take the Premier League by storm next season with their energy, but there is a lack of top-flight know-how.
