According to The Telegraph, Everton are closing in on the signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City.

It has been reported that the Toffees will pay the Citizens a transfer fee of £8 million in order to secure the services of the former Leeds United and Aston Villa midfielder.

The report has claimed that although there has been clubs from England and in Europe interested in the 29-year-old, the England international has picked the Merseyside outfit due to the chance to stay in the north west and play for a club pushing for European qualification.

 

Good signing for Everton?

Delph has extensive experience in the Premier League, and his ability to play as a left-back underlines his versatility.

Everton do have a strong midfield, but a player of Delph’s quality for the reported £8m is too tough to pass.

The Englishman is 29 years of age, and he can certainly be an asset for Marco Silva’s side in the coming years.

Delph’s reported arrival at Goodison Park will enhance Everton’s chances of breaking into the top six of the Premier League next season.
