Man City target Sinclair will not sign new Swansea contract

Swansea City winger Scott Sinclair has informed manager Michael Laudrup that he will not sign a new contract with the club amid interest from Premier League champions Manchester City, the BBC has reported. Sinclair’s existing deal expires at the end of the season.



Laudrup acknowledged there was interest from a “big” club in Sinclair but stressed he expected the player to remain professional until his immediate future became more clear. Swansea start their second Premier League campaign on Saturday against Queens Park Rangers and Laudrup said: “The only thing I care about in the short term is that it does not affect him for Saturday.


If it affects the player then we have to talk about. If he says, 'I'm a professional', then I know he is in the squad.


Sinclair moved to Swansea in 2010, having spent five years as a Chelsea player following a move from Bristol Rovers. Sinclair however made only a handful of appearances for the Stamford Bridge side, instead spending most of his time away from the club in a succession of loan deals. Plymouth Argyle, Queens Park Rangers, Charlton Athletic, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic all took Sinclair temporarily before his permanent move to South Wales two years ago.


In his time at Swansea Sinclair, 23, has made 90 appearances and scored 35 goals, including a hat-trick in the 2011 play-off final that saw the Swans promoted and eight goals in their first Premier League season. Sinclair’s form in the last campaign saw him included in the Team GB squad for the London Olympics.
