Celtic are back in talks with Aston Villa for winger Scott Sinclair and are keen to get a deal done by Monday so he will be able to feature in their Champions League play-off round, according to reports from the Daily Herald.
The Bhoys have enjoyed a solid summer of recruitment under new manager Brendan Rodgers, with Moussa Dembele and Kolo Toure the big name additions.
However, the Scottish champions’ work in the transfer window is seemingly not done, with Sinclair wanted.
Celtic have already had four offers rejected for the 27-year-old, but reports claim that they have once again opened talks with the Championship side.
It’s understood that the Glasgow heavyweights are confident of striking a deal and that they want negotiations to be done in time for Sinclair to be registered for their upcoming Champions League qualification play-off ties.
In order for him to be eligible, Celtic need to snap up the wide attacker by Monday.
Sinclair starred for Rodgers’ Swansea side when they gained promotion to the Premier League in 2010/11, netting 19 goals in the Championship.
