Report: Sheffield United want available Celtic winger Scott Sinclair

Newly-promoted Premier League club Sheffield United are reportedly ready to make a move for Celtic attacker Scott Sinclair.

According to the Sun, the Blades want to add the 30-year-old to their squad as they prepare for life back in the English top-flight.

It is understood that Sheffield United are joining the pursuit for the winger and he’s become their latest target.

The report details that Sinclair will be allowed to exit Celtic for around £2million, with Championship outfit Middlesbrough eyeing him too.


Sinclair scored 17 goals in 55 games across all competitions last season, while he picked six assists too.

The left-winger has played a colossal role during the club’s success in recent years and been involved in the Treble-Treble success.

He’s enjoyed some of the best form of his career during his time at Parkhead, but previously played for the like of Manchester City, Swansea City and Aston Villa in England.

TBR’s View:

Sinclair may be about to enter the final year of his contract with Celtic, but losing him for as cheap as £2million seems quite low.

The wide man may not have been at his dazzling best during the last year, but still delivered a decent goal return and there is not much to suggest he wouldn’t do the same if he stuck around next season.

Sheffield United need experience following their promotion and Sinclair could be a shrewd addition to help them.

The English winger thrived under the management of Brendan Rodgers, but did slip out of the side following Neil Lennon’s arrival and that must have a role in his availability.
