Scott Sinclair on brink of Aston Villa deal, report says

Scott Sinclair's move from Manchester City to Aston Villa could go through within a day.

Manchester City flop Scott Sinclair is set to complete his loan switch to Aston Villa within the next 24 hours, Press Association reported.

The winger will sign until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move, according to PA.

The deal looked off last week when Villa boss Paul Lambert claimed it was dead but the clubs revived talks earlier this week.

Sinclair could also be included in Villa's squad for Sunday's trip to Arsenal, should the move be completed in time.

The 25-year-old joined...

Alexis Sanchez 'hamstring concern' for Arsenal vs. Aston Villa - Wenger

New Arsenal signing Gabriel Paulista spoke to the media after he was unveiled on Thursday. Joel Campbell has joined Villareal as part of the deal.

Alexis Sanchez is a doubt for Arsenal's Premier League clash with Aston Villa on Sunday with a "hamstring concern, manager Arsene Wenger has said.

Sanchez, 26, is the Gunners' top scorer this season with 18 goals in all competitions this season. That haul includes 12 so far in his first campaign in the Premier League since joining from Barcelona in the summer.

The Chilean has started more league games than any other Arsenal player this season except for defender Per Mertesacker but Wenger told the...

Premier League's best weekend bets

Are Manchester City a good bet to close the gap on Chelsea on Saturday?
Are Manchester City a good bet to close the gap on Chelsea on Saturday?

One game dominates the Premier League schedule this weekend: The clash between title contenders Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea are in the driving seat in the title race but this game represents a fantastic opportunity for Manuel Pellegrini's defending champions to close the gap.

Here's a look at the best value bet in that match along with three others taking place this weekend, including Liverpool-West Ham, West Bromwich-Tottenham and Arsenal-Aston Villa.

Chelsea (home) vs. Manchester City

Asian handicap: Chelsea -0.5 (+108) vs. Man City +0.5 (-116)
3-way line: Chelsea +108 / Man City +289 / Draw +253
PickCenter public consensus money line pick: 64 percent Chelsea
Total: 2.5 (Over -104, Under -104)

It may be overstating things to say this game will decide where the Prem title ends up this season, but if Chelsea win they'll take some stopping. A victory for Jose Mourinho's side over their nearest challengers would put Chelsea eight points clear at the top with only 13 games to play. And given how Chelsea have performed this season, it's hard to see them throwing away that sort of lead.

Aston Villa chief executive targets top five position by 2020

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph was pleased to extend his contract with Villa.

Chief executive Tom Fox believes Aston Villa can close the gap on the Premier League's leading clubs, but has warned their rise will take time.

Villa issued a statement of intent over the weekend after tying England midfielder Fabian Delph to a new four-and-a-half year deal.

They have battled relegation for the past three seasons and American owner Randy Lerner, who has scaled back his investment, put the club on the market last year.

Fox, a former chief commercial officer at Arsenal, is keen to...
