SCOTT Sinclair has completed his move to Manchester City from Swansea for a reported £6.3million.

The former Chelsea starlet underwent a medical on Thursday and has now agreed to join the Premier League champions.

Sinclair told the club’s official website: “I’m just glad everything is settled and that I’m now a City player. There were times when I thought it might not happen so I’m relieved that I’m here and I can’t wait to get started.

“Playing alongside some of the best players in the world is exciting for me and when you see two Champions League fixtures against Real Madrid on the horizon, it brings it all home.”

The 27-year old, who scored eight times last season for Swansea is set to fill the gap in Roberto Mancini’s squad vacated by England international Adam Johnson, who recently departed for Sunderland.

Swansea have already moved to line up his replacement for Sinclair, having agreed a fee with Valencia to bring Spanish winger Pablo Hernandez to the Liberty Stadium.
