Scott Sinclair: Will only leave Swansea at the right price
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has stressed his determination to get the best price possible for Manchester City target Scott Sinclair.
Sinclair is widely expected to join the Premier League champions before the end of the month but Jenkins wants a considerable fee - pointing to other high-profile transfers in recent weeks.
Wolves pair Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis are likely to conclude deals taking them to Sunderland and West Ham this week for sums in excess of £10million and it has not escaped Jenkins' attention.
"When you look at Robin van Persie going for £25million and there are a couple of players going from Wolves for large sums of money," he told Sky Sports News.
"Scott is a very good young British player and we expect that if any bid is likely to go ahead we've got to get the value that is right."
If the 23-year-old winger does leave the Liberty Stadium, Swans coach Michael Laudrup will want to bring in a replacement and Valencia wide-man Pablo Hernandez is his primary target.
Jenkins has confirmed he hopes to sign the Spain international but admits he is looking at other possibilities as well.
He added: "I think that one has been publicised with Hernandez and Valencia. That one's ongoing.
"Again, it's something we'd like to conclude as soon as we can but these things do take time.
"But we have got a few other options we're looking at to make sure we don't get caught out between now and the transfer window ending."
