The England midfielder is linked with a move to Everton.
Everton might be about to sign a bit of a chameleon.
The 29-year-old has won two Premier League titles during a four-year spell at Eastlands but now looks set to move to Goodison Park.
And if Pep Guardiola's old comments are anything to go by, Everton will be getting a versatile 'nice guy'.
The England international has been forced to play a number of positions for City during his time with the Sky Blues, including a stint at left-back in the past.
Here's what Guardiola said about him last November: “You cannot be the England captain and help the team if you are not a good guy. Fabian is an important player for us. Last season he helped us by playing in that position when Mendy was injured, and he did well," he told The Express.
“It is not easy when you play in different positions but he has. There is always room for the team to improve, but Fabian is always a banker for us – and the other players know it.”
Delph certainly is a banker. The former Aston Villa and Leeds United star will give maximum effort in whatever position his manager - potentially Marco Silva soon - asks of him.
And if he moves to Merseyside, the supporters are bound to fall in love with him, just as Guardiola did.
