Boro keen on signing experienced Celtic winger, eyeing £2m deal – report

Scott Sinclair

Middlesbrough are interested in signing Scott Sinclair from Celtic in the summer transfer window, according to The Scottish Sun.

Boro – who are aiming to clinch promotion to the Premier League via the Championship playoffs – are reportedly looking at a £2 million summer deal for the 30-year-old former Chelsea and Manchester City winger.

Sinclair has been on the books of Celtic since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Aston Villa for an initial transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £3 million.

The former England Under-21 international winger has been superb for the Hoops over the past three seasons and has established himself as an important player for Neil Lennon’s side.

The 30-year-old has scored 60 goals in 156 appearances in all competitions for the Glasgow giants since arriving north of the border.

This season, the winger has made 23 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic, scoring nine goals in the process.

Would Sinclair be a good signing for Middlesbrough?

Middlesbrough may not clinch promotion to the Premier League, but Sinclair would still be a very good signing for Tony Pulis’s side in the summer transfer window.

The winger knows English football inside out, and he will also add much-needed creativity and wide options for Boro.

Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in the world, but the chance to play in the Premier League or even in the Championship in England could be very tempting for Sinclair.
