Aston Villa this evening confirmed on their official website that winger Scott Sinclair has now signed a permanent deal with the club having been on loan from Manchester City.
The 26-year-old wide man had found first team football hard to come by at City, and it was previous Villa boss Paul Lambert who snapped him up on loan until the end of the season in a bid to give his side a spark in the final third.
Just weeks after his arrival though, Lambert was sacked by Villa, and Sinclair was now working under Tim Sherwood - and with three goals in 11 games, Sinclair has certainly made an impact, showing something near the form that made him a star at Swansea City.
Sinclair has been out of the side lately through injury and selection, but now he has penned a four-year deal with Villa, with a fee of £2.5m reported by the Daily Mail.
Villa fans have responded positively on Twitter, suggesting that the deal is a bargain based on his performances so far - and now it's Sinclair who has taken to Twitter to discuss the transfer.
The former Chelsea youngster has used the social media site to say how pleased he is to have signed for Villa permanently, adding his love for the supporters as well as his desire for a new start having seen his career stagnate since joining Manchester City in 2012.
