According to BBC Sport, the England international midfielder will undergo a medical and complete his move to City today.
Former Derby County and Sunderland defender Higginbotham believes that Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be making a very good signing in the 25-year-old.
MCFC getting a bargain in Delph if 8 million is right.1 of the best Eng midfielders right now. Surely buy out clause should of been more— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) July 10, 2015
Whether it's to do will filling a quota or not. That's not my point. My point is that he has gone for far to cheap. Worth more than that— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) July 10, 2015
It will be a step-up for Delph, but he will find it tough to break into City’s starting line-up.
As good as the Englishman is, he is not a world-class midfielder. This means that Delph will have to raise his game while trying to find regular playing time at the Etihad Stadium.
City have some of the best midfielders in the Premier League, such as Samir Nasri and David Silva, and Delph will have to work hard right from the start.
