Swansea Demanding Mega-Bucks For Manchester City Target Scott Sinclair

Winger can only leave for the right price.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says he is only prepared to let contract-rebel Scott Sinclair join Manchester City if their is a substantial offer from the Champions.

Sinclair has just 11 months left on his current contract at the Liberty Stadium and has refused to sign a new deal amid interest from City, who want the 23-year-old to replace the outbound Adam Johnson.

But Jenkins has insisted that Sinclair will not be sold on the cheap, particularly after Wolves pair Matt Jarvis and Steven Fletcher left Molineux for more than £10m each.

“When you look at Robin van Persie  going for £25 million and there are a couple of players going from Wolves for large sums of money,” he told Sky Sports.

“Scott is a very good young British player and we expect that if any bid is likely to go ahead we’ve got to get the value that is right.”

Swans boss Michael Laudrup has already identified Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez as a replacement should Sinclair leave the club and Jenkins confirmed a deal for the Spanish international was a possibility.

“I think that one has been publicised with Hernandez and Valencia,” Jenkins added. “That one’s ongoing.

“Again, it’s something we’d like to conclude as soon as we can but these things do take time.

“But we have got a few other options we’re looking at to make sure we don’t get caught out between now and the transfer window ending.”
