Swindon chase Posh striker Sinclair
SWINDON Town are interested in signing Peterborough United striker Emile Sinclair.
The Advertiser understands the Robins are looking at the ex-Macclesfield frontman, who has scored 36 times in 193 professional appearances, as a potential replacement for Andy Williams following his departure to Yeovil on a year-long loan deal last week.
Sinclair, 25, still has 12 months left on his contract at London Road and Posh would likely demand a fee should Town wish to take him off their hands.
Along with Gabby Zakuani, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Tyrone Barnett, Sinclair was fined and transfer-listed by Peterborough in November last year after a reported night out but was taken off the transfer list by the club just days later.
He has struggled to make an impact at Posh since, however, and spent time out on loan at Barnsley and Doncaster at the beginning of the year. He has not played a competitive match since February 12.
Sinclair was a highly-rated prospect as a youngster at Nottingham Forest, who he joined as a youth team player after his release from Bradford.
He earned a first professional contract at the City Ground before moving to Macclesfield in 2009 and then to Posh two years later.
Swindon manager Mark Cooper has said that he is keen to bring in a striker and a winger before the transfer window closes on September 2.
Any potential move for Dany N’Guessan, however, may be thwarted by a lack of striking options at Millwall following Steve Morison’s hernia operation.
Morison is expected to miss around a month of football after undergoing the surgery, while Jermaine Easter is struggling with a hamstring complaint and John Marquis is on the verge of a loan move out of the New Den.
With limited resources available to him up front, Lions manager Steve Lomas is unlikely to allow N’Guessan to leave, according to sources in south London.
