Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair has undergone surgery to remove a blood clot in his shoulder, and the former Swansea star will remain in hospital until the weekend.
Sinclair was admitted to Manchester’s Alexandra Hospital last week, after he admitted feeling unwell, with the club admitting later that he was suffering from a clot in his shoulder.
City boss Roberto Mancini sent Sinclair his best wishes, and hoped to have him back soon.
“We are very sorry for Scott but we hope he recovers quickly,” Mancini said. “Scott is getting better, he is in the hospital.”
The City boss has told Sinclair that he should leave Eastlands in the summer, following a disastrous first season since moving to City from Swansea.
It is believed that Swansea would be willing to resign the former Engkand u-21 International, although Liverpool are also interested in signing the tricky winger.
