Villa's English forward/winger Scott Sinclair is being linked to a move away just months after making his loan move from Manchester City permanent. While he had an immediate impact upon joining last term contributing vital goals in both the Premier League and F.A. Cup, his performances of late have been a far cry from last year's. Regardless of this, Sinclair remains Villa's top scorer for the season with 6 goals. Jordan Ayew trails just one behind with 5, but all of Ayew's goals have come in the Premier League, as opposed to Sinclair, who netted 4 in the League Cup against far inferior opponents.

Sinclair used to make his home playing for Swansea, and rumors are circulating that the Swans will look to make a return possible. No potential fee has been disclosed as yet, but Sinclair should still demand a substantial value as an English attacker with proven Premier League ability.

While Remi Garde still hasn't zeroed in on exactly what his most efficient attacking strategy will be, it remains a strong possibility that Sinclair will factor into that significantly. He is a clinical finisher with notable pace, but his consistency often leaves much to be desired. Players like Sinclair who flash brilliance but often disappear from a game completely are the types of players that frustrate fans the most, but selling your top scorer to a relegation rival may likely be a recipe for disaster.
