Fabian Delph sale for £10 million would hit Aston Villa hard

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.
Fabian Delph made 28 Premier League appearances last season.

The subject of release clauses seems to be the theme of Aston Villa's postseason. While there's still widespread reluctance to accept the club are serious about sticking resolutely to their £32.5 million valuation of Christian Benteke -- the prices reported for other players this summer suggests that's reasonable -- something new and nasty has emerged. It's been claimed Fabian Delph, the Villa captain, can leave for as little as £10M.

Delph's new contract -- a four-and-a-half-year extension...

Micah Richards' arrival at Aston Villa perfect timing for both player and club

Micah Richards', right, arrival at Aston Villa could come at the perfect time for player and club.

Micah Richards on a free? Not a bad way for Villa to start its transfer activity this summer and certainly an encouraging first signing for Tim Sherwood. The recruitment of the defender is a step in the right direction as the Villa manager begins to overhaul a squad desperately in need of fresh faces, and talented ones at that.

The 26-year-old is a welcome addition and might perhaps even be considered a coup of a signing by Sherwood, with the player reportedly also receiving offers -- with apparently...

Manchester City and Liverpool fire up Raheem Sterling summer transfer saga

Manchester City have reportedly had a bid worth up to 30 million pounds rejected by Liverpool.

Liverpool have rejected a bid from Manchester City worth an initial £25 million, rising to £30m, for Raheem Sterling, prompting the start of what will surely be a long, drawn-out transfer saga this summer. David Usher (Liverpool) and David Mooney (Manchester City) debate the negotiations between the clubs.

What's your initial reaction to Liverpool rejecting the £25m bid for Sterling?

David Usher: It was hardly surprising. It's all "part of the dance," as Liverpool manager Brendan...

Aston Villa sit in a position of strength in Christian Benteke transfer saga

Aston Villa utility man Leandro Bacuna says he is unsure whether Christian Benteke will remain at Villa Park next season.

The speculation surrounding Christian Benteke's future could be described as relentless. Every day, a new link emerges. Nacer Chadli wants him to sign for Tottenham. Eden Hazard has said he'd be "the happiest man in the world" if his Belgian colleague joined Chelsea. Liverpool were reportedly plotting a bid immediately after the FA Cup final. And so on and so forth. If the sheer force of media coverage could drive a player from club to club, the striker will be on the move very soon.

But will he?...

Sherwood forced to re-plan after Cleverley joins Everton

The ESPN FC panel discuss the recent news of Tom Cleverley's free transfer from Manchester United to Everton, and whether or not Cleverley is worth the risk.

Tom Cleverley -- dynamic attacking midfielder or solid and unspectacular engine room workhorse? Villa fans couldn't completely make up their minds last season; now it's for Everton supporters to make a judgement.

Six days after playing for Villa in the FA Cup final, Cleverley was confirmed as an Everton player. That wasn't a surprise by any means, though the pace at which the negotiations were concluded certainly was. Cleverley had anticipated a decision within two weeks. It took less than half...

Aston Villa's dream dies at Wembley but the dream of the FA Cup lives on

ESPN FC's Alison Bender speaks to Arsenal supporters following their 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup final, heaping praise on another FA Cup crown and Alexis Sanchez's wonder strike.

Iain Macintosh returns to Wembley for the final of Aston Villa vs. Arsenal as the Wembley Dreams series comes to a close.

And so ends a journey that began on Aug. 16, 2014, when 368 of England's smallest clubs kicked off in an extra preliminary round. A journey that would eventually involve 736 clubs in total, clashing over 14 rounds, came to an end at Wembley on Saturday when Arsenal lifted the FA Cup trophy. There was no question that they were worthy winners.

After nail-biting finals in the...
