Villa to land Sinclair


Aston Villa are set to sign Scott Sinclair after Manchester City lowered their asking price for the out-of-favour winger.

Paul Lambert has been chasing the former Swansea City man for a while and a deal looked close to being agreed earlier this month as Villa were backed into 1/6 from 16/1 to sign Sinclair.

Crystal Palace and QPR have also reportedly expressed an interest in signing the 25-year-old, who has made just 12 appearances since joining Manchester City in 2012 from Swansea. However, it appears that Aston Villa are closing in on his signature.
