Fabian Delph has done a remarkable u-turn and decided to join Manchester City - six days after insisting he was remaining at Aston Villa.

The Villa midfielder issued a public statement last Saurday, in the wake of widespread reports that he was moving to the Etihad in an £8million deal, denying that he wanted to leave.

He said: "I’m aware there has been intense media speculation surrounding my future in the last 24 hours and I want to set the record straight.

"I’m staying at the football club and I can’t wait for the start of the season and captaining this great football club."

But now Delph appears to have changed his mind and will join City in time for the start of the new season, according to reports today.

Earlier in the day, reports on social media claimed Delph had been pictured going to the City training ground for a medical, although these were unconfirmed.

Delph's surprise change of heart was predictably greeted with a wave of ridicule on social media.
