'100%' - Exclusive: Bent claims 'Brilliant' Celtic player will seal Jan exit after price reveal
Darren Bent claimed Celtic attacker Scott Sinclair will seal an exit from the club in January due to his price tag.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England international revealed he was confident that a Championship side would sign Sinclair.
Bent explained that Sinclair has been brilliant for Celtic previously and given his price tag as well as his experience, it would be a no-brainer for a Championship side to snap him up.
When asked if Sinclair would be a bargain signing for Championship sides in January, Bent told Football Insider: “Yeah, £1million in today’s football is nothing so someone will take a chance, some people say £15million is a bargain, so £1million is nothing.
“Some clubs do that on wages alone, so for me, it’s a no-brainer.

“He has done some great things up there in Scotland, he’s won the best player of the year, he’s won the league a few times, he’s been brilliant for them up there, but obviously he is surplus to requirements now.
“But for a Championship side, £1million? Someone will take him, 100%”
Sinclair has only managed seven appearances for Neil Lennon’s side this season but has still managed to rack up two goals in those outings.
The 30-year-old has played 167 times for the Hoops since joining the club from Aston Villa in 2016 and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
