Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph has played down his chances of being part of Roy Hodgson's World Cup plans.

Former Leeds youngster Delph has been tipped for a call-up to the England squad after catching the eye for Villa this season.

Asked if he felt he deserved an England call-up, Delph said: "That's not down to me to say.

"My job's just to try to perform my best for my club. I think it's in every player's head and it's every player's ambition to represent their country but I think I might be a bit away from that.

"There seems to be a lot of quality midfield players that are English that are probably above me at the minute. I'll keep grafting and maybe one day."
