Villa lose Delph until 2015

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is set to be out of action until the New Year.

The Birmingham Mail says Delph is expected to be out until the new year as he needs an operation on a dislocated shoulder.

The 24-year-old fell awkwardly in training this week and Aston Villa's worst fears were confirmed today when scans revealed the bad news.

Delph, who has been immense under Paul Lambert and hardly missed a game through injury, is likely to miss around 12 games for Villa as he recovers.
