Speculation has mounted in The Scottish Sun that Celtic want to sign Aston Villa winger Scott Sinclair.

The 27-year-old played under Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers at Swansea City and the Northern Irishman is keen on a reunion.

The former Manchester City man was unable to inspire Aston Villa to Premier League safety last term, scoring just twice - both goals came in the same game, way back in August - as the Villans were relegated to the Championship.

He does, however, have a very decent record in the Championship and helped Rodgers's Swansea side win promotion to the top flight in 2011.

Celtic fans on Twitter would love to see him at Paradise, but a few Aston Villa supporters would prefer to keep him, it seems.

He would certainly be an asset at either club in theory, but if Sinclair wants to be remembered as anything other than a Premier League flop he might stay at Aston Villa, in the hope they win promotion.

With Roberto Di Matteo at the club, a new manager is bound to give Villa players a lift - and if Sinclair is one of them then it is certainly in Aston Villa's interest to retain his services.
