Fabian Delph: Loan starlet keen to remain with Leeds United until the summer
Fabian Delph is hoping to stay with Leeds United for the remainder of the season after joining on loan from Aston Villa.
Delph made his second debut for the Whites in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Ipswich Town.
The 22-year-old's initial deal is due to expire on 25th February, although Leeds want to retain Delph for the remainder of the season.
The Bradford-born midfielder wants to stay at Elland Road until the summer and do his best to help Leeds win promotion.
"That would be an absolute dream for me I get the nod to stay till the end of the season. If that happens, I'd be delighted," said Delph.
"These things don't come around quickly, you've got to build.
"Hopefully if we can keep going and the fans can stick behind us then we might end up in the Premier League.
"That's the sprit that we've got, the fans were all very vocal today and we just pushed on and kept going. We've got a never-say-die attitude, that's what came across (against Ipswich) and we just carried on going.
"I would like to be playing football and if I can play here I'll be delighted, because this is my home club and this is where I've always been happiest."
