Football:Aston Villa agree fee for Delph

Aston Villa have agreed a fee with Leeds United for Fabian Delph.
Villa released a statement confirming they have been given permission by Leeds to talk to the midfielder.
The highly rated 19-year-old has risen through the ranks at Elland Road and was a regular for United in League One last season.
Manchester City and Everton have also been linked with the player and United confirmed they have rejected bids from Premier League clubs.
A Leeds statement added: "Leeds United wish to place on record our appreciation for the honourable manner in which Aston Villa have conducted their interest in the player.
"The club has resisted approaches from other FA Premier League clubs since agreeing terms with Aston Villa.

"Having given Villa our commitment to transfer the player (subject to a medical), we had no intention of going back."
Delph, who was the Football League's Young Player of the Year last season, signed a new four-year deal with Leeds in September but he has continued to attract interest from Premier League clubs.
He was withdrawn from United's pre-season friendly with Burnley on Saturday.
Last week, Manchester City manager Mark Hughes confirmed his side's interest in the England Under-21 international, saying he was "a young player who has been brought to our attention".
In June, Leeds denied Everton had made an approach for the youngster.
