Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair wants to make his loan deal at Aston Villa permanent following their FA Cup semi-final win against Liverpool, reports the Birmingham Mail.
The on-loan star wants to pledge his future to Tim Sherwood’s side after revitalising his career in the Midlands following a frustrating two seasons at Manchester City.
Sinclair joined Villa in January and has scored three goals in 10 games, and also played as a substitute in Sunday’s 2-1 semi-final win over Liverpool to ensure a meeting with Liverpool in the final.
Sinclair is yet to hold talks over his future with either Manchester City or Villa, but is adamant he wants to stay beyond the Wembley showdown.
When asked if a win over Arsenal would convince him to stay, he said: “Definitely, I feel at home at Villa.
“It’s a great club and I’m sure at the end of the season we can sit down and I can sign - I just have to wait until the end of the season,” Sinclair told the Birmingham mail.
Sinclair has been frozen out of Manchester City’s squad ever since his move to the Etihad in 2012. He has started only three games for the Citizens and it is clear why he sees his future in the Midlands.
Meanwhile Sinclair has also praised Villa’s ability to pull away from the relegation scrap, and potentially bring home a trophy this season too.
“As football players that’s what you want and we’ve got into the final and perhaps we can win a cup now.”
“We’ve had a tough time and we’ve had to dig deep but it brings out the characters in us and shows we have the fight to keep going and now we have to take it in the Premier League and make sure we’re safe,” he added.
