Sinclair reveals England ambition

On-loan winger Scott Sinclair hopes his season-long spell with Wigan will help to boost his international and club prospects. The 20-year-old joined from Chelsea, his sixth loan spell - five of which have been at Coca-Cola Championship clubs - since making his first-team debut in 2007. "With it being a loan deal I obviously want people back at Chelsea to see me do well but I'm really happy that I get to do that at a great club like Wigan," he said. "Hopefully if I do play every week I can prove I'm good enough for England." Sinclair has taken former winger Antonio Valencia's number 16 shirt after the Ecuador international moved to Manchester United earlier in the summer, but the youngster played down comparisons. "I can't compare myself with Valencia yet because he's played in the Premier League for a while and I'm just young and still learning the game," he added. "When I was younger I was predominantly a striker but as I've progressed I've adapted my play to be able to move out onto the wing as well, mainly out on the left, which is now probably where I prefer to play. It's up to the manager where I fill in and wherever he wants me to play I'm happy to do so."
