Former Leeds hero Fabian Delph will be sidelined for up to eight months after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a training session on Saturday. The Aston Villa and England U-21 international, who has played eight league matches for Martin O'Neill's side this season, will undergo surgery "in the near future" according to the Midlands club. The 20-year-old joined Villa, who are sixth in the Premier League, from Leeds United last summer.
