Alright, I feel PRETTY confident that this is going to publish before it’s obsolete, but probably not by much. Scott Sinclair looks likely to be headed out the door to join Celtic sometime soon. It’s a £4.5 million return on the former Manchester City winger that means Aston Villa will have done some good business. Now to his player preview:

VERSION 1: Sinclair stays

Scott Sinclair is an adept left winger who probably rates a 6.5 on a scale of 1-10. He’ll get used a bunch, and the likelihood of him really making a big impact is pretty small. His 2015-16 season was entirely forgettable, but he’s got skill, so he could make an impact that we all remember. If he’s used wisely, he can provide decent service and isn’t a total defensive liability.

VERSION 2: Sinclair goes

Wow, £4.5 million, huh? That’s about 3/8 of Ross McCormack. So when McCormack scores 24 goals this year, we can send Scott a thank you card for 9 of them. Thanks, Scott! It was a huge help!
