Yet despite being settled in Wales and playing some of his best football to date, the 23-year-old has less than a year left on his current contract, and has already turned down one offer of an extension. Sinclair is keeping his options open, and has been informed that a number of other Premier League clubs are chasing his signature, including Newcastle United and Aston Villa. However, Champions Manchester City are also considering a move for the quick-silver wideman, after being informed by a third party representative that the player would cost just £8 million to wrestle from Swansea. City boss Roberto Mancini is on the look out for another winger, and despite his sides vast resources, he is unwilling to spend big on a player who would essential be back up. Swansea are already resigned to losing Sinclair, and have lined up a £2 million deal for Bristol City star Albert Admoah as a cut-price replacement. Liverpool, and former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers, are also said to be interested in Sinclair, but are refusing to pay £8 million, and hope they could snatch him on a free transfer next summer.
