Delph: I owe Villa career to Lerner

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is floating after last week's matchwinning performance in victory over Chelsea.

Delph reveals his phone went crazy - and there was a special message from Villa's American tycoon owner Randy Lerner.

He said: "I owe my Villa career to the chairman - he's been brilliant. I got a text on Saturday saying congratulations. I must have had about 80 texts."
