Everton are closing in on the signing of Fabian Delph, according to The Telegraph.

The 29-year-old, who is entering the final year of his contract at the Etihad, is said to be seen as a key addition to Marco Silva’s squad with the Toffees operating on a strict budget this summer.

The reported £8m fee is rather small by English Premier League standards in 2019, especially for an England international who has a wealth of experience in the top-flight.

Delph has made 89 appearances for City since joining from Aston Villa back in 2015, often in a relief role, but with the arrivals of Rodri and Angelino this summer the versatile league winner is being pushed down the pecking order in a number of positions.

Capable of playing as a defensive midfielder or a wing-back he adds much to the Everton squad and although it not be the most fashionable of signings, he could prove effective.

Fans are certainly taking the positives out of the potential switch, taking to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…
