Manchester City defender set for bumper new deal

Fabian Delph will be rewarded with a bumper new Manchester City deal if he remains injury free for the rest of the season, reports The Daily Mirror. 
 
The 28-year-old looked destined to leave City over the summer after struggling to find a role at the club but has transformed into an important player under Pep Guardiola this season. 
 
Delph has sufficiently acted as an emergency left-back for City since Benjamin Mendy suffered a season-ending knee injury at the end of September. 
 
Guardiola is still exploring the possibility of signing a recognised left-back in January but Delph’s importance has not gone unnoticed. 

Delph has struggled with knee injuries during his career and City will reward the England international with a pay rise in the summer if he stays fit until then. 
 
Only Ashley Young (7.44) has earned a higher WhoScored rating than Delph (7.19) of all left-backs in the Premier League this season.
