Aston Villa have signed England under-21 midfielder Fabian Delph from League One Leeds United, the Premier League club said on Tuesday. "Aston Villa can confirm the signing of Fabian Delph from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee," a statement on the Villa website said. British media reported that Leeds could receive a fee of up to eight million pounds for the 19-year-old, who had attracted interest from big-spending Manchester City. Delph won his first under-21 cap against Czech Republic in November and was Leeds's player of the year last season as they lost out on promotion to Millwall in the play-offs.
