City agree terms with Swansea winger but Johnson will be allowed to leave.
Manchester City have agreed terms with Swansea winger Scott Sinclair and are now ready to sell Adam Johnson.
Boss Roberto Mancini has become frustrated with Johnson’s inability to fulfil his potential at Eastlands and will turn to 23-year-old contract-rebel Sinclair instead, reports Goal.com.
Tottenham and Liverpool head a host of clubs ready to battle it out for the former Middlesborough wide-man.
Meanwhile, it is understood that City have yet to formally bid for £5 million-rated Swansea winger Sinclair but have agreed terms with the player following his participation in the Olympics with Team GB.
Sinclair has just 11 months remaining on his contract at the Liberty Stadium and has refused new talks following the departure of his mentor, Brendan Rodgers, to Liverpool.
Fulham and Aston Villa had been leading the race for the speedy winger but the England under-21 international has set his sights on City after learning of the Champions’ interest.
Sinclair scored seven league goals last season and was a key player as Swansea impressed in their debut Premier League campaign.
Johnson has a contract with City until 2015 but has badly fallen out of favour with Mancini, who refused to take any blame for the 25-year-old’s omission from England’s Euro 2012 squad.
It is understood he will be allowed to leave for a cut-price £8 million.
