Leeds favourites to re-sign Fabian Delph
Garry Monk has made no secret of his desire to improve his squad in January as he looks to guide Leeds back to the Premier League this season.
The Elland Road manager has been linked with a shock move to bring England international Delph back to the club he started his career at.
And bookmakers Ladbrokes have responded to the speculation by pricing Leeds as 4/1 favourites to become the 27-year-old's next club.

While Newcastle are said to be looking to strengthen their chances of an immediate return to the Premier League with some top-flight experience this month.
But Delph, who made 58 appearances for Leeds as a youngster before leaving for Villa, could be set for an incredible return to Elland Road.
A Ladbrokes spokesman said: “The good times look to be returning at Elland Road, and the rise of the fallen giants could continue with Delph’s dramatic homecoming.”
