Boss confident of keeping winger
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is confident of keeping Scott Sinclair despite interest from Manchester City.
The winger has been strongly linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium over the last week, while Liverpool and Fulham are also among the clubs showing an interest in him.
Sinclair has just 12 months remaining on his current deal and Swansea are keen to get him tied down to a new one as soon as possible. Talks are set to take place and Laudrup thinks he will be able to keep hold of the player.
The chances of breaking into the first team on a regular basis will be difficult at City and Laudrup says Sinclair will be best off staying where he is.
"I don't look at it as a loss," the boss revealed. "I look at it as an interest, maybe, or maybe not, but I think he is very happy here. He knows he is important for the team.
"It is always nice when the bigger clubs have an interest but you have to look at the other players that are playing in the same position at the bigger clubs. I think he will stay here."
Keeping hold of Joe Allen will be more difficult with the player poised to sign for Liverpool once a fee can be agreed.
