Isaiah Osbourne could be key to Aston Villa's move for Leeds United winger Fabian Delph.

The People says Villa boss Martin O'Neill may use Osbourne as a make-weight in his £6m-plus bid to sign Delph.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson needs to add fresh faces to his squad and would be interested in a move for the midfielder.

Osbourne, 22, was handed a four-year deal by O'Neill but has failed to make his mark.

He enjoyed a successful spell on loan with Nottingham Forest last season.
