Aston Villa have signed Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair for the remainder of the season, as per Aston Villa official website.
The former Chelsea winger joined Manchester City from Swansea City in 2012 but the player was not satisfied with his playing time.
With a struggling first season at Etihad Stadium he spent the next season on loan at West Brom, where he also struggled with playing time. He made only eight Premier League appearances.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was keen to get him in his squad and finally sealed is move. The Citizens were trying to offload him permanently for a fee around £4million, however the Villains were not ready for the permanent move, they might make in the summer.
The 25-year-old is hungry to play football again after several years.
While, Villa’s Jack Grealish is likely to leave the club with Nottingham Forest and Wolves interested in his move. This deal would help in funding Aston Villa’s move for Sinclair in the summer.
The Englishman is eager to play football as he told boss Paul Lambert. He is very happy to seal this seal and is hoping for the best in his future.
Sinclair told Villa official website: “I am still hungry to play football, that’s what I told him, and I’m looking forwarding to getting started, hopefully playing every week and enjoying my football.”
