Premier League trio on standby for Man City misfit

Scott Sinclair  Everton, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion are on standby if Manchester City misfit Scott Sinclair is allowed to leave on loan next season.

Sinclair will seek a loan move from the Etihad Stadium next season – if manager Roberto Mancini keeps his job, but the winger is ready to stay and battle for his place should the Italian be sacked by the deposed Premier League champions.

Sinclair more than quadrupled his £10,000-a-week salary by switching from Swansea for £6.2million last August, but he has started just two Premier League games for boss Mancini, and is yet to score a goal for the club. Sinclair, 24, is reluctant to leave the Blues permanently, however, he is apparently open to a loan move to get him some regular first-team games if Mancini continues to view him as nothing more than a bench-filler.

WBA boss Steve Clarke could have a slight advantage in the race to sign him up, having worked with Sinclair for two years previously at Chelsea.
