Published : 19 Apr 2010 14:07:00
Aston Villa have confirmed that young midfielder Fabian Delph suffered a 'serious' knee injury over the weekend and faces a lengthy spell out. Delph suffered the injury during a training session prior to Villa's win over Portsmouth on Sunday. The 20-year-old now looks set to be sidelined for a considerable length of time, but as yet the club cannot confirm the full extent of the injury. "Fabian is awaiting results from scans taken to determine the extent of a serious knee injury suffered in training on Saturday," said a club statement. "The player had to be stretchered off and immediately underwent tests. Doctors will know what damage has been done in the next 24 to 48 hours." The 20-year-old former Leeds United star joined Villa last summer, but he has failed to make the expected impact making just eight Premier League appearances.
