Swansea City are being linked with a move for Chelsea’s 19 year old striker Scott Sinclair.

After the departure of Darryl Duffy to Bristol Rovers, Roberto Martinez is in the hunt for a 4th striker. Spending last season with Crystal Palace the striker has championship experience but a move for Manchester United youngster Fabien Brandy has also been touted as a possible replacement for Duffy. Reports have suggested that Roberto Martinez has made enquiries over the player who has had stints at championship sides Charlton Athletic and Plymouth Argyle. Sinclair has also represented England at youth level and has 8 international goals to his name

The Bath born player has also been subject to controversy after he was sent home from international duty after breaking a curfew. Swansea face stiff competition to sign the highly rated youngster from former club Crystal Palace as a move by the Selhurst Park outfit are lining up a move for the Chelsea star.

Warnock Told The Croydon Adveriser:

“Loan deals are always an option and it’s something I will look at, but ideally I want my squad to be players who are contracted to the club. The one player I am looking to bring in on loan is Scott Sinclair, but we will have to wait for him because Chelsea don’t tend to let their youngsters leave on loan until they’ve played in the Carling Cup.”
