Delph happy with gradual promotion at Aston Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is happy with the way he is being introduced to Premiership action by manager Martin O'Neill.

Delph impressed in this week's draw at Villa Park against Manchester United and is hopeful that O'Neill will persevere with him in the centre of midfield.

"He's helped me leaps and bounds," he said. "He's given me a few chances, but I haven't taken them.

"Hopefully he'll keep believing in me, give me the odd start here and there and I can do well."
