Man City complete Sinclair signing

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of winger Scott Sinclair from Swansea for an as yet undisclosed fee, thought to be £6.2million, the BBC reports.

Originally moving to south Wales following an unsuccessful spell with Chelsea, Sinclair quickly became a fans’ favourite with the Liberty Stadium faithful.

The 23-year-old proved to be an integral part of the Swans side that earned promotion to the Premier League in 2011, and stayed up with relative ease in their debut season.

Swansea reportedly turned down an offer of £6.2million for Sinclair, with the Welsh club later accepting the same offer with an added bonus that could potentially see the transfer fee increase to £8million.

I’m just glad everything is settled and that I’m now a City player,” Sinclair told Manchester City’s official website. “There were times when I thought it might not happen so I’m relieved that I’m here and I can’t wait to get started.

“Playing alongside some of the best players in the world is exciting for me and when you see two Champions League fixtures against Real Madrid on the horizon, it brings it all home.”
