Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Scott Sinclair signing

Aston Villa fans took to Twitter on Friday to react to the loan signing of Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair.

With Aston Villa confirming the long-mooted signing of Scott Sinclair from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal, the claret and blue faithful have been taking to Twitter to give their take on the move.

Sinclair, 25, joined City from Swansea in 2012 for £6.2 million, but has since made just three starts in 19 total appearances for the Premier League champions.

The former England Under-21 international has seen just 29 minutes of action in four games this season, and has not featured for Manuel Pellegrini’s side since coming on late in the 2-2 draw with Burnley in December.

He spent last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, but played just eight times in the Premier League after struggling with injuries.

Nevertheless, the ex-Chelsea product was highly-regarded during his time at Swansea, and even earned support for a senior England call-up after hitting 19 goals in 43 Championship games during the 2010-11 season to help fire the Swans to the top-flight.

Arriving with a view to a £2.5 million permanent move in the summer, Villa fans will hope the City outcast can get his once-promising career back on track in the West Midlands, with the following being a handful of the Twitter reactions to the deal.
