We were kind of hoping the news form Sky Sports earlier today may have even been accurate, with large bets being placed on Newcastle signing Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair.
Scott Sinclair – Newcastle no nothing about any contact
The odds had been cut dramatically to 1/4 on this morning, and SkyBet were wondering if the punters were in the know and knew what was going on.
But in an exclusive from Sports Direct News they say that Newcastle are “unaware” of reports linking the club with a bid for Manchester City’s 24 year-old winger Scott Sinclair.
Sports Direct News is reporting that a Newcastle spokesman “has poured cold water over any potential move.”
The Newcastle spokesperson had this to say:
“We’re unaware of those bets. I don’t know where that information has come from, so I can’t really say much more.”
Of course that statement doesn’t exactly say flat-out that Newcastle are not in for the player, and they cannot say much more – maybe until after Scott signs along the dotted line for Newcastle?
We’ll have to wait and see, and the news of a possible signing could be completely untrue – but for around £3M Scott – a goal-scoring winger – could be a decent buy for Newcastle.
