Every so often a rumour hits the sports pages that grabs you by the balls.

When the January transfer window was open one such rumour did exactly that.

Now I don`t even know if there was a hint of truth in it or whether it was all fiction but the thought of the Leeds United youngster, Fabien Delph, coming to Craven Cottage lit my face up.

I secretly hoped that having failed to do the business in January that we`d do it this summer but as is often the case with dreams, they get broken!

Today I opened the sports pages to find that Delph has been snapped up by Everton for a fee that could eventually reach £4 million.

Delph arrives at Goodison having been voted the Football League Young Player of the Year.

Am I disappointed – you bet!

  • Leeds are denying they’ve even received an offer for Delph since the end of the season. There’s still hope, I guess.

  • it’s a shame if we don’t get him… it’s be nice to have some youth to look forward to…

  • There is indeed still hope. According to one of the more reliable guys on TiFF we have made an offer for him. Lets hope that this is true!

  • Leeds have NOT revieved an offer yet. Everton are interested, yes, but have not made their move yet.
