With Wise still attempting to fill his quota of young talent for the £1m contract he`s on, Ken Bates has laughed out his muckas offer for youngster Fabian Delph. The academy product has earned rave reviews and recently was the toast of Leeds with a brilliant double strike recently. Bates said:

‘I’m still amazed at a recent offer Newcastle made for Fabian. I won’t tell you the content of the fax we sent back but it did end the conversation. It’s inevitable if the team does well predatory upper league clubs will try their luck without success.

Fabian Delph will be moving to Premier League – but we hope he’ll be moving with us via the Championship. He signed a four-year contract until 2012 and he doesn’t want to go anywhere.’
