Leeds have revealed they have rejected offers from two unnamed Premier League clubs for Fabian Delph as well as approaches for Jermaine Beckford.

A host of top-flight clubs, including Arsenal, Everton and most recently Aston Villa, have been linked with £6million rated 19-year-old Delph.

The England Under-21 midfielder, who was voted Football League Young Player of the Year last term, is widely regarded as one of the most promising young talents on these shores.

Beckford, meanwhile, scored 34 goals for the Yorkshire club last season but was placed on the transfer list back in May having failed to agree new terms and with his contract set to expire next summer.

An official statement on Leeds' website read: "Leeds United can confirm that we have received offers direct from two Premier League clubs for Fabian Delph.

"The offers have been rejected. It is not the club's usual policy to comment on speculation. However, in these circumstances we felt it appropriate to clarify the situation.

"Approaches have also been made in respect of Jermaine Beckford which have also been rejected."
