Celtic have made a fresh approach for Aston Villa midfielder Scott Sinclair, according to sports journalist Peter O’Rourke.
In late July, Celtic had a fourth bid of £2.75 million rejected for Sinclair who were looking for around £4 million for the former Manchester City star.
He has been one of the top targets for Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and according to the Daily Record the deal is all but done, with the player due to have a medical in the coming days.
Villa seem to of budged from there asking price buoyed from their capture of Fulham striker Ross McCormack, making Sinclair not as vital now.
He will hope to replicate the form that earned him the move to Manchester City, scoring 36 goals in 91 games helping them win promotion to the Premier League.
But his career went off the rails at City barely featuring in his three years at the club. After joining Villa he was one of the brighter sparks in last year’s miserable campaign which saw them relegated and it now seems Sinclair won’t be part of Di Matteo’s revolution.
