Aston Villa winger Scott Sinclair has confirmed he would like to stay at Villa Park on a permanent basis, with the 26-year-old currently being loaned out from Manchester City.
Sinclair joined on loan from City in January and has played his part in the club’s improvement under manager Tim Sherwood.
The former England Under-21 international has so far scored three goals in 10 games in the English Premier League for Villa, as well as two in three in the English FA Cup, in where his side are now to play the competition’s final against Arsenal at Wembley next month.
Sinclair is yet to hold talks with Sherwood over his future at Villa but he is keen to remain there for an extended period.
When asked about his future, he said: “Definitely, I feel at home at Villa, it’s a great club, I’m sure at the end of the season we can sit down and I can sign.
“I just have to wait until the end of the season.”
Sinclair is ruled out of Saturday’s league meeting with parent club City at the Etihad Stadium, but has little future under City boss Manuel Pellegrini having started just three times after moving from Swansea City in 2012.
At Villa, he has become a key part of Villa’s midfield alongside Fabian Delph and believes the skipper is becoming one of the English top flight’s most influential players.
“I think when you are playing every week you go into a place where you get more confident and that’s what he’s done,” he added.
“He’s stayed here, signed a new contract and this is his home. He is performing every week and every week he is improving.”
