Leeds not only turned down a better bid from Manchester City but also Spurs as well for midfielder Fabian Delph, who has now completed his deal with the Midlands club.
The Whites who had already agreed a deal with Villa decided to stay true to their word and turn down the higher bids after they was impressed with the way that Villa went about their business.
Leeds even released a statement after the fee was agreed complimenting Villa on the way they went about the approach for Delph, and by going through all the correct channels.
Reports suggest that Leeds were particularly infuriated by the way that ‘money bags` Manchester City went about their business.
