Sinclair set for big things

Despite being overlooked by Stuart Pearce for England it is surely only a matter of time before he gains international recognition.

Back in May he smashed a hat trick past Reading to seal a return to the Premier League after he was sold by Chelsea in what looks like the best piece of business done by the Swans.

Scott Sinclair
He was not wanted by Chelsea having been restricted to a handful of outings and spent the vast majority on time on loan. Having joined the club from Bristol Rovers back in 2005 he was seen by many as the future of the English game.

Since then it has not gone to plan loan spells at six different clubs including stints in the Premier League with Wigan. His move to South Wales came as a surprise but the initial step down has paid dividends.

He is now getting plaudits right around the league as a result of his dazzling performances. Many Chelsea fans will be left scratching their heads at his exit as he is the kind of player who would make a huge difference to their struggling team.

He has chipped in with seven goals a fantastic return for a winger and his assist record has been impressive.
Brendan Rodgers 
 A lot of credit must go to Brendan Rodgers who has instilled a style of football that allows Sinclair to flourish. A number of clubs around the country will be chasing a number of Swansea players this summer and Sinclair will be right at the top of the list for most.

He has missed out on his first call up to the national set up but in time it will come. Perhaps the European Championships will come to soon the qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup could see him making the break.
