Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair – of whom the Villans have been linked with – can still perform at the top level, despite his career stagnating at the Etihad, reports Sky
“I know the lad from his Swansea days. I know exactly what he can do, he was top, top class in that side. It’s been a hard move for him going to Man City, but the year he had at Swansea in the Premier League he was outstanding. So he has got it in him, he can be a real good player,” said the Villa boss.
Aston Villa have been linked with a £2.5M move for the 25-year-old, with goals and creativity having been an issue for the Midlands outfit this season. The two sides are said to be negotiating on price, but a deal could well be wrapped on in the coming days if Sinclair is keen to leave.
