Man City close in on Sinclair

Scott Sinclair’s proposed move to Manchester City looks set to go ahead in the next 48 hours. According to the Telegraph, Swansea are prepared to accept an offer so long as it is more that the £5 million which has been offered so far – speculation mounts that a deal worth £8 million will seal the transfer.

The 23-year-old signed for the South Wales club following a lack of first team opportunities at Chelsea where he progressed through the ranks following a move from Bristol Rovers when he was 16-years-old. He only played 13 games in total in his five years at Stamford Bridge, finding himself on loan six times before he left for Swansea in 2010.

As well as helping the club become the first ever Welsh team to play in the Premier League he was also key to keeping the side up last season. In stark contrast to his time with the Blues, the winger has played 91 games – scoring 36 goal – in total at Swansea, including all 38 top-flight fixtures in the last campaign.

Michael Laudrup has expressed his desire to keep the player but it would seem the allure of Manchester City is too much for the young Englishman.
