Delap started his career on the books at Derby County and rose up through their academy before signing for Manchester City in 2019.

He caught the eye playing for City’s youth sides before being called into their first-team by Pep Guardiola.

The striker made his senior debut against Bournemouth in September last year and then was handed his first Premier League appearance against Leicester City a few days later.

Delap has since played once more for the top flight champions and they have a decision to make on his immediate future.
