Plymouth Argyle have signed promising Chelsea youngster Scott Sinclair on a month's loan. The teenage striker has tasted first-team action at Stamford Bridge having made a substitute appearance in the Blues' Carling Cup semi-final first leg meeting with Wycombe Wanderers last week. Sinclair, 17, is an England youth international who moved to the Premiership champions from Bristol Rovers in 2005. "He can play numerous positions," Pilgrims boss Ian Holloway told the club's official website. "He's quick as lightning. He's someone I knew and trained when he was ten years old. "He left Bristol when Chelsea secured his signature and we've been monitoring his career for the last seven or eight years. "I feel, with what we've got in the squad, he will offer us fantastic cover. "Chelsea have let us borrow him now they are out of the FA Youth Cup."
