Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph is reportedly attracting the eyes of Stoke City, who wish to acquire him on loan this Deadline Day.

The Englishman arrived at the Etihad before the 2015/16 season for a highway robbery fee of £8 million. Since then, he has struggled with injuries but proven he is an electric player who injects energy into the midfield.

Delph has been at the center of several rumors linking him with a move to other Premier League clubs such as West Bromwich Albion, but Delph himself was quick to dismiss all transfer talk.

“A couple of mates have said to me: ‘You’ve been linked with X, Y and Z’ but I’ve not given it any thought, Delph said. "I’m happy here. I feel like I can help my teammates and I’m obviously fit again so I can get more minutes and help the team push on.

“I love it here. I’m working with the best players in the world, great management, great staff around me and I’m very, very happy here.”

Delph will almost certainly be staying at Manchester City this transfer window. It is evident that he does not favor a move at the moment and wants to bring his services to Pep Guardiola’s side.
