Rodgers in shock £2m Celtic raid for forgotten ex-Premier League forward


Aston Villa in the Football Transfer Tavern are surprised that a club have tabled a £2 million offer for their under performing wideman.

According to The Sun, Scottish Premiership champions Celtic have submitted a formal offer for Villa’s Scott Sinclair.

It is believed Brendan Rodgers has made the former Manchester City and Swansea winger his number one target this summer.

The 27-year-old has a great working relationship with the Hoops chief from their days at the Liberty Stadium, which earned him a move to the Etihad, but unfortunately his career stagnated in Manchester.

Although Villa fans want their board to look at their options before making a decision on the deal, because the former England under-21 star has experience of the Football League and he could fire them to promotion.

Still, having spent 18 months at Villa Park, he went on to make just 27 appearances but could not keep the sinking ship afloat in the Premier League.

Aston Villa fans. Do you think you should sell Scott Sinclair? Let us know your thoughts below.
