Villa’s young midfielder Fabian Delph has been dealt a huge blow as the club have announced his injury, picked up in training last Saturday, is a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament [ACL] in his left knee.

The official site says he’ll have ACL reconstruction ‘at the appropriate time’ and expect him to be out for up to eight months.

I’m sure I speak for all on Vital Villa in wishing him a very speedy recovery.
