Sinclair nears City switch
Scott Sinclair appears to be closing in on a move to Manchester City after they tabled a formal offer for the Swansea winger.
The 23-year-old has informed Swans chairman Huw Jenkins and manager Michael Laudrup he has no desire to sign a new deal at the Liberty Stadium, and with his current contract set to expire next summer, he was always likely to be sold. City have long been the favourites to sign the former Chelsea man and Press Association Sport understands they have firmed up their interest by making a bid, believed to be in the region of £5million. And Swansea first-team coach Alan Curtis admitted a move to the Etihad Stadium was looking increasingly likely for Great Britain Olympic forward Sinclair, who scored in the thumping 5-0 win at QPR on Saturday. Curtis told BBC Sport: "He's not really interested in signing a new contract and I think Man City have made a bid. "So it's just a matter of time now before it happens and it's good for both parties."
