SINCLAIR TO SWANSEA

Posted on: Mon 09 Aug 2010

Chelsea Football Club can confirm it has agreed terms for the transfer of Scott Sinclair to Swansea City.

We thank Scott for his service over the past five years and wish him well in his future career.

The 21-year-old arrived at Chelsea from Bristol Rovers in July 2005, having already made his debut for the Pirates when he was just 15.

He top-scored for the youth team in his first campaign with us, repeating the feat with the reserves a season later and he made a first team debut early in January 2007 before going on loan at Plymouth where he scored a memorable solo FA Cup goal.

Drafted into the first team squad before Jose Mourinho's departure, Scott played regularly in domestic cup competitions under Avram Grant before loan moves to QPR, Charlton and Crystal Palace.

In his final 18 months at the club, Scott also spent time with Birmingham City in the Championship and Wigan Athletic in the Premier League, where he made 18 league appearances last season.

In total for Chelsea, the Bath-born winger played 14 times, scoring once, a Carling Cup third round goal away at Hull City in September 2007.

We hope to complete the transfer on Tuesday.
