Fabian Delph

Fabian Delph became Everton’s third summer signing of 2019 – after Jonas Lossl and Andre Gomes – when he signed a three-year deal from Manchester City.

Delph was an integral component of the City team which amassed 100 points to win the Premier League in 2017/18, finishing on the winning side in 19 of his 22 appearances.

The former Aston Villa player featured 20 times in all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s team in 2018/19 as City claimed an unprecedented domestic treble.

Delph made four appearances for England at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and was in the Three Lions side for both their Nations League finals matches in June 2019.

The versatile player, comfortable operating anywhere in midfield or at left-back, spent six years with Villa before leaving for the Etihad Stadium in summer 2015.

Delph played more than 130 matches for the Midlands club and was the driving force behind Villa’s run to the 2015 FA Cup final, scoring a semi-final winner against Liverpool after netting in the previous round victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Yorkshireman Delph progressed through the academy at Leeds United and was 17 when he made his senior debut in May 2007, becoming a fixture in Leeds’ side in 2008/09 before transferring to Villa.

Contracted until June 2022.
