Michael Laudrup Says Scott Sinclair Is No Closer To Manchester City Move

Swans boss says winger no closer to exit.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup says winger Scott Sinclair is no closer to joining Manchester City, despite leaving him out of the squad for the 3-0 win over West Ham.

Sinclair has just 11 months remaining on his current contract and has refused to sign a deal deal at the Liberty Stadium, amid interest from the Champions.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has insisted it will take a massive bid to land Sinclair, with City believed to have offered just £5m for the 22-year-old.

City sold Adam Johnson to Sunderland on Friday, paving way for a Sinclair’s arrival but Laudrup says the situation remains unresolved but he is relaxed about the outcome.

“Last week after the game (against QPR) I said it was no problem bringing him into the squad. He did a good job, he came off the bench and he scored,” the Dane is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph.

“There are a lot of things going on around Scott and I spoke with him and we decided it was better for everyone that he did not participate at all in the game [with West Ham].

“We know things can move fast in this game but we will wait until Monday to see where things stand. We know it could go on until Friday.

“If he is still here after that he will be in the squad next Saturday, if he is not, he is not.

“There is a lot of interest in Scott. I really don’t know if he will be here after Friday but everything is possible. It is possible he stays, it is possible he leaves.”
