Spurs may be interested in swap for Villa midfielder, probably aren't

From one paragraph in the Mirror to an entire piece in the Sutton Coldfield Observer. This is how transfer rumours begin.

Do I put much stock in it? No. There's been plenty of talk that Delph would be leaving in the January window.

Fabian Delph [shoulder] returned to first team training today, in a non-contact capacity. #AVFC — Aston Villa FC (@AVFCOfficial) December 5, 2014 Personally, I feel that the team haven't missed Delph that much - Cleverley and Sánchez have performed more than admirably in his absence, but the return of one of Villa's star players can not be ignored. In fact, I'm not sure as to how Delph...
