Swansea winger Sinclair close to Man City move

Swansea City and Manchester City look to have come to terms on a deal that will see Scott Sinclair leave South Wales for the Etihad Stadium before the transfer window closes on Friday. According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League champions have offered a deal initially worth £6.2m but rising to £8m with add-ons, an offer with which Swansea are happy.

The transfer looked dead after the weekend with the Welsh club rejecting an offer from City, considering it to be below their valuation of the English winger. But now the two clubs have reached an agreement and all that remains is for Sinclair to complete a medical and agree personal terms.

The 23-year-old signed for Swansea from Chelsea in 2010 following a number of loan moves away from Stamford Bridge. Without the guarantee of breaking into the first team he felt that a move to the then Championship club would help his development more than staying with the Blues.

He has played 82 league games for the Swans, helping them gain promotion in his first season, and has scored 28 times. He is expected to be a like-for-like replacement for Adam Johnson who left City for Sunderland last week in a deal worth £10m.
