Report: Celtic in talks with 30-year-old over a possible new deal

Scott Sinclair

According to a report from The Record, Celtic interim boss Neil Lennon has confirmed the club are in talks with Scott Sinclair about a new contract at Parkhead.

Sinclair’s current contract with the Hoops runs until the summer of 2020, and it has been reported his future at the club is uncertain.

The 30-year-old joined Celtic from Aston Villa in the summer of 2016 on a four-year deal, and has been a sensational signing for the club.

Lennon, whose side welcome Rangers to Parkhead in the Old Firm derby later today, told The Record:

“Discussions are ongoing at the minute. Lustig and a few others are speaking as well, like Scott Sinclair and Nir Bitton.”

Those words do not guarantee that the former Chelsea and Swansea City ace will sign a new deal, but it’s a good news for the club that talks are on-going.

Sinclair was signed by the Hoops’ former boss Brendan Rodgers, who left the club last month to replace Claude Puel as Leicester City boss, and this has prompted questions from the club’s fans as to whether the Northern Irishman’s departure would affect the 30-year-old’s stay with Celtic.

Sinclair has netted 17 goals for Celtic in all outings this season and looks like he loves the club dearly, but it remains to be seen how the contract talks will unfold in the next couple of months.
