Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is poised to sign a new contract extension to remain at Villa Park, according to the Daily Mail.

Delph made his competitive national debut on Monday as England faced Switzerland in their first game of the Euro 2016 qualifying stages. Delph and his team-mates ran out 2-0 winners following a brace from new Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck.

Delph has a year left on contract

Delph represented his country at Under-19 and Under-21 level before making his full senior debut in a friendly against Norway on 3 September 2014.

The 24-year-old midfielder has a year left on his current deal which will make him free to talk to clubs in January and available for free transfer next summer.

Villa confident deal will be agreed

Tom Fox, Villa’s new chief executive, has told reporters that he is keen to hold on to the talented youngster. Villa boss Paul Lambert is also confident that an agreement can be reached to keep Delph at the club.

Delph joined Villa from Leeds in 2009 for a fee of £6 million. With wages reportedly close to £40,000 per week Delph is one of one of Villa’s highest earners.

Despite Delph's large wages, the club will be looking to prevent one of their star players from leaving the club on a free transfer by tying him down to a new deal.
