Grayson clears way for Delph sale

Published Add your comment

Leeds boss Simon Grayson has admitted that he would find it difficult to begrudge youngster Fabian Delph a move to the Barclays Premier League.

The impressive 19-year-old has attracted attention from a host of top-flight clubs with Aston Villa and Everton both reportedly having bids turned down.

Now Tottenham have declared their interest in taking the England Under-21 international, who has an £8million price tag on his head, to White Hart Lane and Grayson knows it could be tough to keep hold of him.

"We're not talking about him going to a League One team," Grayson told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"We're talking about top Premier League clubs coming in for him.

"The hardest thing for us would be to accept a bid in the first place, but also to deny the player the chance to go to that level."
