Manchester City are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of the transfer window closing, with Scott Sinclair on the verge of completing a switch from Swansea City for £5 million.

The 23-year-old has made it clear that he wants to leave the Liberty Stadium after being informed of interest from the Premier League champions, although Sinclair did score during a substitute’s appearance for the Swans at Loftus Road on Saturday.
It appears that will be the final time he wears the Swansea shirt, with first-team coach Alan Curtis revealing that a new contract had been rejected by Sinclair.
Curtis told BBC Sport: “He’s not really interested in signing a new contract and I think Man City have made a bid. So it’s just a matter of time now before it happens and it’s good for both parties.”
Manager Michael Laudrup saw his team impress during a 5-0 win over QPR on the opening day of the season, with new signing Michu taking no time to get up and running, while Ki Sung-yueng appears on the verge of arriving from Celtic.
Many expected Swansea to struggle without Sinclair, Joe Allen, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker in the team, although the early signs are that the Welsh club will be pushing towards mid-table again.
