West Ham launching bid for Villa midfielder Delph
The Mirror says the former England Under-21 player has a year left on his Villa Park deal and the Hammers believe they can prise him away.
The Hammers are ready to make an offer of around £5m for a player who attracted the attention of England boss Hodgson with some fine performances in a struggling Villa team last season.
Villa are keen to tie former Leeds kid Delph to a new deal but no agreement is imminent.
