Former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair has penned a one-year deal with Huddersfield Town after being released by Burnley. The 35-year-old played 13 games for the Terriers during a loan spell at the Galpharm Stadium for the last three months of the season, starring in central defence and right-back. Sinclair is looking forward to a new challenge, telling Town's official website: "Andy Ritchie has taken over and he's been successful in League One before. "We'll make a real big push for getting into the Championship next season. "It's a very big club for this league. We wouldn't be out of place in the Championship and there are exciting times ahead. "I'm coming towards the end of my career and want to finish it as successfully as I started it. I've been made very welcome here and I've had a good rapport with the fans from the start." Former Jamaica international Sinclair has made almost 450 League appearances during a 17-year professional career that included a six-year spell with Leicester City before he joined Burnley in July 2004.
