Everton Tipped to Make Move for Unwanted Man City Bench Warmer Scott Sinclair

Etihad Stadium wide-man could be Goodison Park bound.

Check in to Manchester City vs Wigan Athletic

Man City winger Scott Sinclair appears to be on his way to the Etihad Stadium exit as Roberto Mancini looks to conduct something of clear-out. So keen are the big spending side to get rid of the 23 year old that they are willing to hand him a £2m pay-off if he does indeed leave the club this summer according to the Daily Star.

The former Swansea City man joined Man City in a £6.2m deal last August but predictably has failed to make an impact, due chiefly to the host of talents ahead of him in Mancini’s first-team pecking order.

Sinclair has been handed just two Premier League starts, the last of which was way back in August and now Everton and Southampton are tipped to make a move for the Bath born attacker.

The offer of a pay-out from Man City is perhaps designed to persuade Sinclair to not merely sit out the remainder of his £40k a week contract, which still has three years to run but a lot will depend on whether the former Team GB man is ready to give up on the reigning Premier League champions.

If he does look to leave then a move to Everton may well prove more tempting than a switch to the South Coast, especially if David Moyes side have secured European football for next term.
