Delph has no doubts about quality of Villa pal Westwood

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph has no doubts about the quality of Ashley Westwood.

Westwood signed for Villa from Crewe Alexandra in August.

Delph said: "Ashley is a terrific player technically and he is up there with the best in our team, he said. Playing in the lower leagues, I wouldn't knock it and wouldn't change it for anything. The step up here is massive. Myself and Westy are the same age so we can relate to each other. I can see him getting a run in the team very soon and doing well.

"With the lower leagues, you play twice a week most of the time and the physical side of it is really up there.

"Everybody is fit and willing to make a tackle.

"When you make the step up it is a bit nicer, but it is a lot more technical and you have got to adjust to that."
