Danny Mills suggested that Celtic will struggle to sell attacker Scott Sinclair in the January window.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England international revealed that he believes Sinclair’s demand for a high wage will hurt his chances of an exit.
Sinclair’s Hoops contract, which is believed to be worth more than £30,000-a-week, is on course to expire at the end of the season.
Mills explained that while £1million is a cheap price tag for Sinclair with him clearly still having something to offer, his potential high wages make him a gamble.
When asked if Sinclair will be a January bargain for clubs, Mills told Football Insider: “It’ll depend on his wages that will be the biggest thing as when a player is that cheap, he could well be demanding high wages.
“You’re looking at it, he’s clearly got something to offer, got a little bit of quality, but it’s a little bit of a gamble especially if you going to have to pay high wages.”
The 30-year-old has only featured seven times across all competitions for Neil Lennon’s side this season but has still managed to rack up two goals.
Sinclair has been at Parkhead since joining the Hoops from Aston Villa in 2016 and the attacker has won the league three times with the Scottish giants.
