Sinclair gets go ahead for Man City exit

Scott Sinclair’s future looks to be away from Manchester City, after Roberto Mancini confirmed he is free to leave for first team opportunities, according to ESPN.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Sinclair’s old club Swansea on Saturday, the Italian said: “Scott is young and he has good quality but this year was difficult for him. It is better if he can have another solution.

“The situation with Sinclair is difficult because I didn’t give him a lot of chances to play. He is very unlucky. It is my fault, not his fault.

“A young player like Scott who is a good player deserves to play always. For him, it was a really difficult year.”

The former Chelsea youngster joined the Citizens on transfer deadline day in August from the Swans for £6.2m.

However, he has effectively taken over Adam Johnson’s role before his move to Sunderland of warming the bench at Eastlands.

The 24-year-old has made just two league starts for City; the last of those coming at home to Arsenal on 23 September.

The move has turned out to be disaster for his career, after some great progress was being made at Swansea.

Sinclair has been well-travelled throughout his career, with loan spells at Plymouth Argyle, Crystal Palace, QPR, and Birmingham City before his move to Swansea for a fee of £500,000 in 2009.

His former club might be interested in taking him back, with Liverpool also being mooted as a possible destination.

Victory at the Liberty Stadium would guarantee a second place finish for the 2012 Premier League champions.
