Sinclair Finally Wings In
Quicksilver winger Scott Sinclair is now a Manchester City player having completed a protracted £6.2 million transfer from Swansea...
The previously much loaned out before settling in South Wales 23 year old finally put pen to paper today and goes straight into the City squad for the visit of Leslie Hughes' Queen's Park Rangers tomorrow. The less said about his erstwhile unprofessional Chairman, the better. The speedster enthused:
'I'm just glad everything is settled and that I'm now a City player...There were times when I thought it might not happen so I'm relieved that I'm here and I can't wait to get started...Playing alongside some of the best players in the world is exciting for me and when you see two Champions League fixtures against Real Madrid on the horizon, it brings it all home.'
Welcome to Planet Blue, Scott!
