Scott Sinclair is a curious player. Having enjoyed a decent spell at Chelsea with limited game time, he decided to move to Swansea to expand his career and blossom as a footballer. He was a standout player for Swansea and was crucial in their promotion campaign which was no less evident than in the playoff final against Reading where he scored a hattrick for the Welsh club to ensure promotion to top flight.
Even his first season in the Premier League was good, helping the Swans avoid the drop and establishing himself as their main penalty taker. However, the problems started when he became a tad bit too greedy and refused to sign an extension with Swansea.
The next season saw him wearing the no. 11 shirt at Eitihad Stadium with Manchester City. However the Englishman was never able to establish himself at the club and failed to flatter even in his loan spell with West Brom where he was relegated to the bench and reserve games.
The new season saw Sinclair still warming the bench until it finally seemed that he realised the importance of playing time over just earning wages and pushed for a move to Aston Villa in the transfer season.
The initial signs at Villa Park seem to be favourable with Scott pushing for playing time and readily playing attractive attacking football. Only time will tell though, whether he has learned from his lessons.
