Former Celtic winger Scott Sinclair is training with Chelsea as he looks for a new club. The 33-year-old was released by Preston North End at the end of last season following two-and-a-half years with the Championship club.
Sinclair had a spell early in his career with the Stamford Bridge club, this is where he met Brendan Rodgers. Now, he is back hoping to keep fit and active as he looks to earn a contract as a free agent.

Sinclair was a key player in the Treble Treble team as one of Brendan Rodgers’ favourite players. From signing from Villa, Sinclair scored on his debut and the next four games after that – becoming the first player in 94 years to score five goals in his first five games.
However, Rodgers’ departure and the arrival of Neil Lennon saw Sinclair’s game time dry up and he was clearly out of favour with Lennon. In 167 appearances, Sinclair scored 62 goals as well as winning 9 trophies in his time in Glasgow.
Best of luck to Sinclair, a Championship team could do a lot worse than offering an experienced pro like Sinclair the opportunity to bolster their ranks.
