Manchester City's Scott Sinclair completes £2.5million move to Aston Villa
Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair has made his loan move to Aston Villa permanent, according to reports. This brings to an end to Sinclair’s Manchester City career that never really got started ,ever since the ex-Chelsea midfielder joined the Eastlands outfit in the summer of 2012 from Swansea.
The young winger was never really able to carve out his niche at Manchester, having made only 14 appearances for the Blues of Manchester in three years at the club; scoring no goals and recording no assists.
Sinclair’s loan contract included a provision where the Midlands side would take him in permanently if their Premier League status was maintained. That became a certainty even though they were hammered by 6 goals by Southampton at the weekend, because of Hull’s 2-0 defeat to Spurs.
Stability will help me perform better: Sinclair
The midfielder seemed delighted to have made his move a permanent one. Sinclair said: "I am so happy. For every footballer, it's important to have that stability. I believe that will help me perform better and push on for this great club in the coming years."
The midfielder hasn't quite set Villa Park alight this season. Sinclair has appeared only 8 times for Villa this season in the Premier League and hasn’t started a game since their game against Swansea in March. His solitary league goal for the Villa Park outfit came in a 2-1 home defeat to Stoke in February.
The 26-year old, however, has played a vital role in Villa’s path to the FA Cup final, having scored vital goals against Leicester and West Brom.
