The Aston Expressway to Delhi

West Bromwich Albion striker Adil Nabi hopes to become a role model for other English Asians in the Indian Super League.
BBC Midlands Today's Laura May McMullan speaks to the 21-year-old Aston-born forward ahead of his season-long move to Delhi Dynamos.
"With guys like Nicolas Anelka, Florent Malouda and John Arne Riise over there, they've started to make a louder noise," said Nabi. "Cricket's still the number one sport there but hopefully over the next few years football will get even bigger.
"There haven't been many role models in the past. Hopefully I can change that and help to attract a lot more Asian lads to the game."
