Delph suffered a hamstring injury during Friday's preseason friendly against Real Madrid, the BBC reports.

Delph will undergo additional scans on the issue, but manager Manuel Pellegrini intimated that it is possible Delph, who was acquired from Aston Villa earlier this month, could miss the beginning of the upcoming Premier League season, which City kicks off Aug. 10 against West Brom.

Delph signed a five-year contract with Manchester City on Friday after transferring from Aston Villa.

Delph had been long rumored to be joining Man City this summer, but he said as recently as last week that he would be staying at Aston Villa. Apparently it was a smoke screen because he put pen to paper Friday. He isn't likely to get nearly as much playing time at Man City than at Aston Villa, but he fills a spot on the roster for an English player and likely got a big pay raise with the move.

Delph (shoulder) was subbed onto the pitch against West Brom on Saturday and managed to take two unsuccessful shots on goal.

It's still unclear whether or not Delph will return to the starting XI this coming Saturday against Manchester United or continue to come off the bench. Either way, he seems to have made a long-awaited recovery from the dislocated shoulder that he suffered back in mid-October.

Delph will have surgery on a dislocated shoulder suffered in training Tuesday and he will be sidelined for at least two months, the BBC reports.

Delph's fantasy upside in most games is limited given his role as a defensive midfielder, though his absence could be a hit to the Aston Villa defenders with less help up front now.

Delph suffered a shoulder injury in practice and seems to be in serious doubt for Saturday's match against Everton, the Birmingham Mail reports.

The severity of Delph's injury is still unknown, although manager Paul Lambert didn't rule out the possibility that Delph may need surgery for a dislocated shoulder. Despite this, Delph will officially have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match to determine if he can give it a go.

Delph was able to play the full 90 minutes during the match with Arsenal on Saturday but he's been battling a stomach virus throughout the week.

Delph and his teammates have been battling the stomach bug, although Delph seems to be in the clear since he was able to play the full match Saturday. The midfielder has been a crucial player for Villa this season as he's started in all five of their Premier League matches.

Aston Villa is expected to offer Delph an improved contract when he returns from England duty, according to the Daily Mail.

Delph has one year remaining on his current contract and would be free to speak with other clubs in January. Aston Villa is working to keep the midfielder, though.

Delph (foot) was able to play the full 90 against Walsall on Wednesday.

While a goal or two would have been nice for Delph, just his participation in Wednesday's friendly was good enough since he'd been dealing with a minor foot injury. With Wednesday's involvement, Delph seems like a sure bet to be ready for the Aug. 16 opener against Stoke City.
