Southampton in for Man City flop

Scott Sinclair looks to be on his way out from the Etihad

Manchester City youngster Scott Sinclair has emerged as a top target for relegation battling Southampton, according to the Sun.

The former Swansea winger has failed to make an impact at the Champions since his surprising £6.2million move last summer.  Sinclair had to hope to continue his fine form which had initially rewarded him with the move to the Manchester club.  However with a couple of niggling injuries and fall from form Sinclair has only managed only two starts for City.

There is hope though for the future England prospect with a couple of Premier League clubs willing to rescue him.  Paul Lambert will be hoping to bolster his Aston Villa side in order to keep them safe within the Premier League.  Whereas Southampton are the more likely contenders after new manager Mauricio Pochettino missed out on Philippe Coutinho.  Southampton have also received ‘parachute’ payments of around £25 million which will protect their finances for the next three years, a key factor if they need to out pay their competitors.

Sinclair will likely find himself at a new club by the beginning of next season, both Southampton and Villa will gift him regular starts.  Which is exactly what he needs to get back in the England setup.
