Celtic Sign Scott Sinclair From Aston Villa On Four-year Deal
Celtic have announced the signing of forward Scott Sinclair from Aston Villa on a four-year contract.
Sinclair, 27, is the latest addition to manager Brendan Rodgers’ ranks, having previously worked with him at Swansea.
Sinclair, who could go straight into the squad for the Scottish Premiership opener against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday, told Celtic’s official website: “It feels amazing to have joined Celtic. It’s a massive club and I’m looking forward to it. I’m here now, and I’m happy to be here.”
“I can’t wait to get on the pitch. When I went back to Aston Villa for preseason, I heard Celtic were interested and I just knew I had to come here.
“I had to look at this move and I thought it would be great for me. And because I know the manager and I know what to expect, hopefully I can get off to a flying start.
“The manager had a great influence when I was at Swansea, and that’s when I played my best football.
“Hopefully now I can get the best football out of me and get my form back out there and score goals and perform.
“I’m just hoping to come here, score some goals, create chances and hopefully excite the fans.”
