Newcastle United, Burnley and West Bromwich Albion have all entered the race to sign Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph this summer.
The 27-year-old arrived at the Etihad in 2015 from Aston Villa in an £8m deal but has been limited to just 24 appearances in his two years at the club.
Pep Guardiola is set for a major squad overhaul this summer and despite Delph saying he is willing to fight for his place, the Daily Star report that he could be shown the exit door after falling way down the first-team pecking order.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is preparing to bid for the English midfielder after Joey Barton's contract was terminated in May following an 18-month FA ban for betting.
However, newly promoted Newcastle and fellow Premier League side West Brom are also interested in acquiring Delphs' services.
Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is set to be handed a hefty transfer budget as his side prepare for an immediate return to the top flight and Benitez sees Delph's Premier League experience as important to the squad's success.
West Brom midfielder Darren Fletcher recently left the club after turning down a new deal and joined Stoke City on a free transfer - paving the way for Baggies manager Tony Pulis to sign a new midfielder.
Delph started his career with Leeds United before moving to Aston Villa in 2009. He eventually left the club for City in controversial circumstances after promising fans he was going to stay. The midfielder has also made nine international appearances for England.
