According to a report in the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa striker Scott Sinclair would be open to a move to Celtic.

Celtic have made Sinclair one of their top targets this summer, but getting a deal done is proving to be problematic.

The Bhoys have made four offers for Sinclair, but they are yet to bid more than £2.8 million.

Villa are believed to value the forward at closer to the £5 million mark, meaning that a compromise will have to be met if the transfer is to go through.

Celtic are expected to make another offer to try and force through a deal, but Villa’s response looks likely to rebuff it unless their asking price is met.

Sinclair, himself, is said to be willing to move to Celtic - as he looks to reignite his career.

The rapid forward looked to have the world at his feet at Swansea City, but a move to Manchester City halted his development and he is yet to show his best at Villa.

Sinclair made 21 Premier League appearances for Villa last term, but he only found the back of the net on two occasions.
