Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has hit out at Manchester City for the way they have handled their pursuit of Scott Sinclair.

Sinclair is poised to seal his move to the Premier League champions in the next 24 hours after weeks of haggling over his transfer fee.

Jenkins is unhappy at how long the deal has dragged on leaving Swansea with little time to bring in a replacement for Sinclair at the Liberty Stadium.

"It has been dragging on a while and I'd have thought if they really wanted to sign Scott they would have dealt with it a bit better than they have, but that's their business."

"It has been dragging on a while and I'd have thought if they really wanted to sign Scott they would have dealt with it a bit better than they have, but that's their business," noted Jenkins.

Signings

Jenkins is also hopeful of bringing in a couple of new faces before the transfer window slams shut on Friday.

"Hopefully, over the next few days, we'll get a couple more signings in and we can put the transfer window behind us at the end of the month," added Jenkins.

"Our proposed signing of a couple of players is not dependent on Scott's transfer out. I think it's more about numbers and making sure we have the right number in the squad."
