Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph believes new teammate Aleksandar Tonev will surprise opposition defences this season.

Delph expects claret and blue new-boy Tonev to shine in the top flight.

He said: "He's very powerful as a player. He's strong, he's sharp, he's direct too and he gives us another genuine goal threat.

"I have been so impressed with him. You rarely - if ever - get players who are two-footed in football these days. He's great with both feet."
